Vancouver is a popular tourist attraction for a reason – it has a little something to offer for everyone. It’s particularly popular amongst millennials and those travelers who aim to be a little more ethical with the way that they spend their money.
In fact, Vancouver has established an impressive reputation for itself in recent years as a hotspot for adventure travelers, eco tourists and art lovers, and if you ask us, that’s not surprising. Here are just a few of the highlights in the area.
-Vancouver Travel Itineraries for Adventure Travel, Ecotourism, and Art Lovers
Find an eco-friendly hotel
If you can’t find an eco-friendly hotel in Vancouver then you won’t be able to find one anywhere. The city aims to be one of the greenest cities in the world by 2020 and is home to a range of eco-friendly hotels including the Westin Grand and the Fairmont Waterfront, the latter of which is particularly known for its local produce and its in-house herb garden.
Hop on a cruise
If adventure travel is what you’re looking for, you could do a lot worse than to stop in Vancouver on a cruise. In fact, it can be a great way to see the Pacific Northwest from a unique perspective, and you’ll get to see plenty of local wildlife while you’re at it.
Going hiking will allow you to see much of the natural beauty of Vancouver up close and personal, and it’ll also help you to keep your carbon footprint down. Just make sure that you pack wisely and that you have maps, water and communication devices with you when you head off the beaten path. And don’t forget to pick up your litter instead of leaving it behind for the animals.
Take an “Art Wheelers” tour
One way to mix a love of art with a love of activity and tourism is to take the “Art Wheelers” tour with Cycle City Tours. There, you’ll hop on a bike and be shown around some of the city’s iconic art hotspots by a tour guide who knows exactly what they’re talking about. Better still, you don’t have to worry too much if you’re not in the best of shape because the route is flat throughout.
Now that you know just a few of the best things to add to your Vancouver travel itinerary, it’s over to you for you to decide which ones are going to make the final cut. Once you’ve figured that out, you can start to determine which season will be best for you to visit in and then to decide upon some dates.
With the dates in hand and a good idea of what your itinerary will look like, you can start to put deposits down and to make bookings. This will help you to keep costs down and ultimately allow you to pack more into your visit. Happy travels!
