Pre- and Post-Conference Trips
Vancouver's unbeatable location makes it the perfect gateway to the rest of British Columbia and beyond, allowing you to enhance your meeting's appeal by offering your delegates a range of outstanding opportunities for pre and post-conference travel. Just a 90-minute drive from Vancouver is the world-class resort of Whistler with some of the world’s best skiing in the winter, and golf and sightseeing in the summer. Another easy day trip from the city is Victoria, British Columbia’s charming capital city, located on Vancouver Island, a spectacular 35-minute floatplane ride away. Further afield, the Okanagan Valley, the province’s biggest wine growing region, is a four-hour drive east from Vancouver. Rail buffs will enjoy Rocky Mountaineer’s two-day itineraries that take visitors through British Columbia’s interior and on to either Banff or Jasper in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. And with some of the world's top cruise lines operating out of the city, Vancouver is an excellent place to embark on a cruise up the Inside Passage route to Alaska. The opportunities are endless!
