West Canada — Introduction
So immense is Canada that it is possible to travel from lush green foliage to soaring snow-capped peaks and on to arid desert in less than 24 hours.
The landscape of the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta almost overwhelm the senses’ ability to understand what is unfolding before your eyes.
West Canada’s biggest city is the cosmopolitan Vancouver known for its diversity, mild climate and an array of places to see and things to do. From mountains to golf, history and art, Vancouver is one of the few places in the world where it is possible to ski, hike and visit the beach all in one day and the city’s great transport system helps you get there.
Added to this the area benefits from a very mild climate, so even in winter there are great opportunities to explore it’s abundant delights. Nature reveals its true glory in the vast wilderness of the Icefields, the mesmerising Lake Louise and the enthralling National Parks of Banff and Jasper.
