Richard - Canada Holiday Expert

Where you have visited: :

 British Columbia – Vancouver to Calgary (including the Rocky Mountaineer) 

Favourite place:

 Vancouver – From the culture, to the sights, to the activities, this city has so much to offer anyone visiting it for a short or long period of time. It truly has so much! 

Favourite hotel:

Rimrock Hotel – This welcoming hotel sits on the outskirts of Banff, just a short shuttle bus ride away to the centre. It offers spectacular views from it’s outside spaces where you can enjoy a coffee, wine or beer. The Banff hot springs are literally a walk away which is especially soothing after a tough day of sightseeing. 

Favourite attractions:

Cycle around Stanley Park /  Taking a fast zodiac out into the Strait of Georgia to try and see whales / Visiting so many exceptional restaurants to enjoy good food, and a beer.  

Favourite restaurants:

Earls Test Kitchen, Hornby Street - Sleek, upscale restaurant serving gourmet burgers, comfort food, cocktails, wines & beers – nom nom sip! 

Top tips / handy hints:

Visit a Tim Horton’s – one of the most popular places in Canada to have a great cup of coffee, perfect for a city on the move. Go on – have a Timbit too!

Things to look out for…

The Gastown neighbourhood of Vancouver. This is a trendy food and drink district that has many cocktail lounges, bars and restaurants serving everything from gourmet sandwiches to local seafood. 

Watch out for cyclists. This is an active city (Vancouver) full of cyclist commuting to work. Catching the day at the wrong time and you may have a tough time crossing the road. 

Greatest memory:

The Rocky Mountaineer – this is one of the most iconic rail journeys in the world. What is not to like; a journey filled with wildlife, azure lakes, snow-capped mountains, all the while enjoying it from your panoramic-domed carriage.
