When we hear the word we think of cold icy state, hockey and French people, but Canada has so much more to offer than just that. This place is unique with so many different sites and dramatic landscapes that you can’t find in the U.S or even Europe.
1. Walk The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
Located 10 minutes from downtown Vancouver through Stanley Park over Lions Gate Bridge and North 1 mile on Capilano Road. This magical place has so much to do and see it’s easy to spend your entire day here. The park has features such as The Suspension Bridge, The Cliff Walk, and Treetop Adventure – each one more unique than the other.
Capilano Suspension Bridge takes you to the serenity of a West Coast rainforest. Visitors have crossed Capilano Suspension Bridge since 1889.
The Cliff Walk offers a different experience that allows visitors to follow a granite precipice along Capilano River with a labyrinth-like series of narrow cantilevered bridges, stairs and platforms.
The Treetops Adventure offers a squirrel’s eye view of a thriving coastal rainforest in the mid-story of 1300-year-old old growth Douglas-firs.
2. Enjoy Pacific Rim National Park
Backed by the Vancouver Island Range and facing the open Pacific Ocean, Pacific Rim presents the rich natural and cultural heritage of Canada’s west coast. Follow the West Coast Trail, Camp, or even kayak these amazing waters!
3. Stay The Night In The Free Spirit Spheres on Vancouver Island
Ok, so this is pretty neat. You have to stay in these hotels when you get here!! They’re free standing spheres in the trees of the West Coast Rainforest, fully decorated and furnished beautifully that give you such an amazing view of the outside world. This view is especially stunning at night.

4. Love Joffre Lakes
Big fan of beautiful lakes here at Agape and this one kind of takes the cake. It’s a hike to get here but it’s well worth it and quite the view as you are surrounded by glacier laden peaks. The turquoise blue waters of Lower, Middle and Upper Joffre lakes are all located along the trail, and each more stunning than the last. Their striking, saturated blue colour is caused by “rockflour” – or glacial silt – that is suspended in the water and reflects green and blue wavelengths of sunlight.
5. Walk Through Butchart Gardens
Possibly the most beautiful garden in the world. Over a century ago, Jennie Butchart began building what is now one of the world’s premier floral show gardens! This place gets close to a million visitors each year and it’s easy to see why. The Park features a Sunken Garden, Japenese Garden, Mediterranean Garden, Rose Garden, Italien Garden and much much more. Come here and be sure to stop and smell ALL the flowers 🙂
6. Do The Whale Watching in Vancouver
Departing from Granville Island in downtown Vancouver, the Wild Whales experience allows you to observe the diverse wildlife of the Pacific Coast in their natural habitat.
7. Enjoy Englishman River Falls
This magical waterfall is located west of Parksville on Vancouver Island. Englishman River Falls Provincial Park features two stunning waterfalls cascading along the descending riverbed into a deep canyon. This park also contains several hiking trails that meander through the forest and along the river.

9. Be Memorized By The Canadian Rockies
Ahhh, magnificently gorgeous. We have no words for this scenic picture except that you must get here and see it for yourself. Bring your own kayak and get to the middle of this lake and just lay there and be happy, because your literally in the happiest place in the world surrounded by nobody and nothing but God’s work.
