Originally a trading point between North America and Eastern Asia, this city’s port area is considered the fifth best place to live in the entire world. We invite you to taste the good life in Vancouver Canada. Cruise to this glittering British Columbia capital via our package holidays from Kenya with stopover accommodation options. We will make sure comfort and fun in this Canadian city are just precursors to your luxurious holiday.
While the city hints that you will never run out of things to do, Vancouver boasts unique charms that will generate an itinerary of its own. Glorious sceneries start to greet you at first sight before you explore the city’s elegant seafood and fusion dining amidst eclectic night scenes.
Take a walk, ride a bike or jog to the world’s longest, uninterrupted waterfront path, the Seawall. Admire the coastline around the area without missing English Bay, Third Beach and Stanley Park, three popular downtown beaches. There are vineyards in the hills beyond the city, so don’t be surprised to find impressive wines available in its bars, as well as a couple of great local breweries.
The city has a thriving live music scene incorporating rock, jazz and folk traditions. Go dancing every night if you wish! You’ll find the local people to be very friendly as you meet one or two in any of your exciting Vancouver excursions. Despite having known many different inhabitants, this cosmopolitan city still harbours Native American (First Nation) cultures evident in several of its museums and historical landmarks.
Delight with the combination of the old and new as you study the metropolis’ lively art scene. Yes — hundreds of impressive art and boutique galleries display local artists’ mastery, including renowned and famous Canadian artist Emily Carr. Drop by the Contemporary Art Gallery nearby for modern, cutting-edge art, the Vancouver Art Gallery for classic and contemporary creations and the Cinematheque for film and media production specialisation.
Obsessed with everything outdoors, Vancouver also takes advantage of its year-round weather. Go whale watching in the bay, trekking in Grouse Mountain or try hiking or cycling in the nearby hills. In spring, the trees turn white, pink and purple with blossoms. In autumn, their leaves turn red and gold.
Awe-inspiring sights like these are what make our luxury holidays and cruises in Canada so popular. Vancouver, whose geographical isolation has led it to develop a culture all its own, is one of the very best places to visit there.
From the glaciers of Alaska to the ports of Vancouver via Celebrity Cruises, the largest metropolitan center in Western Canada and the country’s third largest city is one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world. As it still basks in its post-Olympics glow, Vancouver continues to appeal to all ages. This most livable town is indeed Canada’s Jewel of the Puget Sound.
