Vancouver British Columbia

Updated on February 01, 2015

Vancouver BC

Vancouver is considered one of the best cities in the world because of its relaxing approach with nature, wilderness and its exquisite mix of multicultural traditions.

Located on the Pacific coast in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, the city is surrounded by the Fraser River, mountains, forests, and sea; offering a beautiful view whichever way you turn. You will always be close to nature and this is why Vancouverites enjoy outdoor activities as a very important part of their high quality everyday life.

On this page you will find works created by different photographers and artists, including myself. All images are copyrighted to their own authors. They may not be totally or partialy used, without prior authorization.

How to get to Vancouver

Road, Air or Sea

To get to Vancouver you can fly on any of the international airlines that arrive to its two international airports: Vancouver International Airport and Abbotsford International Airport.

You can also arrive to any of the various alternative airports like the Langley Regional Airport or the Boundary Bay Airport.

To visit from the US by road, coming from Washington State, take Highway 13 North along Bellingham's Guide Meridian. If you live in other states you can find very inexpensive flights arriving to the airport in Bellingham, only 45 miles away from Vancouver.

Cruise lines also offer exciting cruises departing from California and Alaska.

Vancouver a Multicultural City

A rich mix of cultures and traditions


The Official Languages are English and French, but as you walk around the city, you will always hear many others, like Chinese and Farsi.

Vancouver is home to multiple ethnic groups, Chinese and Indian are the second and third largest communities followed by other European, Asian and Latin American groups.

This rich and wonderful mix of cultures and traditions, reflected on the variety of international cuisine available, makes of Vancouver BC a wonderful city to explore.

I invite you to join me for a tour around the city, take a glance at the best things to do, and see why Vancouver is one of my favorite cities.

Exciting Adventures in Vancouver BC

Capilano Suspension Bridge

A famous attraction in Vancouver is the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It is 450 feet long, and it crosses 230 feet above the Capilano River!

You will never regret taking this breathtaking adventure. Once you've made it to the other side, you will enjoy the Treetops Adventure, a walk along 7 suspension bridges above a beautiful forest. At Capilano you can learn about native art and history and see multiple Totem poles

Just a few minutes from Capilano, you will reach Grouse Mountain. Take the gondola ride to the "Peak of Vancouver". Have dinner while you enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the city. Grouse Mountain is a wonderful spot for downhill skiing during the winter and fantastic hiking trails and wildlife watching during the summer.

Flanking Grouse are Mount Seymour and Cypress Bowl, two additional beautiful skiing areas. The latter is famous for cross country skiing, and for hosting the free style downhill skiing competition during 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

      great lens! I visited Vancouver Islands on a family vacation in 1969...I remember the baskets of flowers hanging from the light posts.......and the ferry ride. At restaurants, on the ferry and just walking around, people were friendly.......smiled and greeted us (unlike today). A wonderful memory. THUMB UP!

      I think your tips are extraordinary. Vancouver is one city I have always wanted to visit and still haven't despite living in Portland, OR for a 3 year stretch and being in Canada numerous times. I have been to Banff, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Toronto, and Montreal however. It's just a matter of time until I make it out west to the Pacific Northwest again. When I do I know exactly where to come to find tips and travel guides for the Vancouver and Vancouver Island areas of Canada.
