There’s a misconception out there that Western Canada is only a summer destination. But that couldn’t be further from the truth…It’s more a 4 seasons kind of place.

In reality, this stunning region cannot be confined to a single season, it simply has too much to offer: too many activities to experience, too much beauty to see, too many special moments to turn into long, lasting memories—you know, the ones that make our holidays ones to remember?

Whether you see this for yourself independently or travel with like-minded people on a coach tour with Globus, where every single aspect of the planning and logistics is taken care—not to mention VIP access to the must-see sights.  The West Coast of Canada turns it on, matter the season.

Here are five experiences you can have which capture the beauty of all the different seasons…

 

1. Go on a horse-drawn sleigh ride in Lake Louise

You’ve never heard of a horse-drawn sleigh ride, but that’s only because you’ve never been to Western Canada in the winter! Tick off this once-in-a-lifetime experience whilst breathing in that crisp mountain air as Lake Louise reveals her splendid snow-capped peaks and turquoise, glacier-fed lake. Charge that camera!

 

2. Share breaky with the bears

In the warmer months, start the day with a roar and satisfy a grizzly appetite by sharing breakfast with the bears atop Grouse Mountain, easily accessible via a short gondola ride from Vancouver. The Peak of Vancouver, this mountain offers unrivalled views of beautiful British Colombia.

 

3. Visit a garden wonderland and dine in a historic home

These gardens are the floral equivalent of a garden oasis in spring,  and have been attracting visitors near and far for the last 100 years. No wonder the place has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada. You can ponder this whilst dining inside the original Butchart family residence adjacent to the gardens.

 

4. Experience one of the world’s most iconic train journey

Soak up the stunning Canadian Rockies on one of the most famous train journeys in the world, running from April to October you can see the landscape of the Rockies transform through the seasons. Rocky Mountaineer® has been delivering the visual goods for decades and you really owe it to yourself to have this experience in your belt. It’s never too late to become a rock star!

 

5. Visit the majestic Shannon Falls in the fall

Sail past coastal villages whilst spotting humpback whales and porpoises on a delightful ferry ride across the Strait of Georgia and through the Gulf Islands. Afterwards, walk along a short path to visit the majestic Shannon Falls. At 335-metres-tall, it’s British Columbia’s third tallest waterfall.
