From there, veer north through some of the island's tallest trees before circling back through the vineyards and lakes just north of Victoria.
Escape the city and hit the countless trails of the Coastal Mountains near Vancouver. You can choose from short day hikes that take you to waterfalls and scenic viewpoints or opt for longer treks to the alpine lakes in and around Whistler and Garibaldi Provincial Park. In the evening, enjoy the great restaurants, breweries, and spas in Squamish and Whistler.
This short adventure to the Pacific Rim is a great way to escape the city for a few days.

In the evenings, choose from a variety of world-class restaurants, galleries, and local craft breweries.
