Vancouver Coast & Mountains

The diversity of this large region astounds, ranking Greater Vancouver is one of the best places to live in the world, year after year.

Japanese cherry blossoms line city streets as early as February. Old growth pine trees: nature’s skyscrapers, lie just beyond those of man. In Vancouver, groomed parks give way to forest wilderness and sidewalks give way to sandy beaches. Trek through art galleries in the morning and within minutes you can be on trails through pristine rainforests. Famously, Vancouver is one of the few places in the world where you can kayak in the morning and ski in the afternoon.
