As your flight takes off to Vancouver, you are on your way to study humanities in Canada. As you descend, take a look out of your window to see the province’s temperate rainforests and towering mountains. A local guide will be waiting to transfer you to your city hotel.

The afternoon is yours to explore your environment – stroll down the city’s streets, jump into the hotel pool, or embark on a nature walk. In the evening, you’ll meet with your guide for a buffet dinner. This is a great opportunity to get to know your guides and ask questions about your upcoming adventures!

Start your morning right with an interpretive walking tour led by a First Nations Cultural Ambassador. As you walk around Beaver Lake, learn about the First Nations history, background, and culture, as well as how the people have managed and lived on the land for generations. Along the way, your guide will point out local plants that were once harvested for food, medicine, art, and shelter. Be sure to ask your guide about the struggles Indigenous people experience today, and what you can do to help. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before making your way to Grouse Mountain to celebrate the outdoor and cultural heritage of British Columbia. Discover the province’s incredible wildlife (including indigenous species of bears), enjoy a lumberjack show, and soak up breathtaking mountain and city views. After several hours to explore the mountain, head back to your hotel.

One of the best ways to immerse yourself into a particular culture is through food, which is what you’ll be doing today! Embark on a culinary journey with a food-loving local guide in Gastown. Learn about the culture and history of this area as you stop at many eateries. Some of the dishes you will try are codfish & chips; cheese & prosciutto, and organic soft ice cream.

Calling all nature lovers, today is for you. You are off to the famous village of Whistler on Route 99 to board the Sea-to-Sky Gondola. This two-hour aerial experience offers breathtaking views of coastal forests, the Squamish River, and Howe Sound. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in several optional activities. In the winter season, it’s time to hit the slopes. Enjoy the wind in your hair and incredible mountain scenery as you soar down the mountain.

Your local guide will assist you in searching for humpback whales, killer whales, and dolphins. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot a pod of orcas! Watch in awe as their tails flip and they breach in the water. During your ride, a naturalist will educate you on whale biology and behavior. Following your tour, enjoy lunch before taking the time to explore the city independently.

It’s hard to believe how quickly time can fly by! Take your last morning in Vancouver to enjoy a buffet breakfast with your guides and friends.
