Vancouver is most famous for its beauty, from snow-capped mountains to the deep blue sea; Vancouver is gorgeous; watch when the sun is shining, it's truly a sight to behold. If you’re visiting Vancouver for an active vacation and looking for some active excursions or in the city on business and looking for some “me time,” Vancouver has plenty of good options for the mind and the body.  

Did you know Vancouver is ranked as the 10th cleanest city in the world? Wow, no wonder this city represents that wellness aspect people always seek in travel and total wellness. Did you also know that  German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Chinese are widely spoken in Canada besides English? More than half of Vancouver's school-age children have been raised speaking a language other than English!


Activities:  Bring your walking shoes, and get ready to walk. My recommendations for this city include…

  • Bike around Stanley, Located in the downtown Vancouver Peninsula with over 1000 acres. It's blissful.

  • Bowing Island-Plan a day trip to this glorious island. There’s no shortage of things to do around this island at Howe Sound's entrance. The location is nestled in the mountains surrounded by fjords. Walk, hike, kayak, picnic, and explore this beautiful hidden treasure. Talk about healthy living at its finest!

  • Hike Mt Seymour- If you are up for a snow-filled hike, check out Mt. Seymour. Get your hiking boots out and be ready to huff and puff to an epic city view. We have some great connections to tour guides who will have you seeing the sites and sounds of the city that most people don’t get a chance to see.  Reach out.

Currency: Don’t forget that Canada uses the Canadian Dollar. If you’re coming from another country, definitely exchange your money beforehand. We recommend not doing so at the airport unless it’s your last resort. Most of the time, you can use your credit card. As always, be sure your bank/credit card can be utilized internationally, and let them know ahead of time that you will be using your card when you travel. 


Transportation: Around Vancouver, we recommend renting a car. If you are there for a short stay, a car or bus would be the most affordable way to see the city.  Note: They DO NOT have uber/lyft in Canada (it is banned).


Health Tip:  Pack water and stay hydrated as you do a lot of walking and touring in this city.   Always carry an umbrella as well.  You never know when the rain may fall, so bring that light jacket (or heavier in winter) and waterproof shoes since it typically rains quite a bit in the winter!

Empowering you always to live well + travel!
