At a Glance

Look! Is that a black bear eating blueberries on the mountainside, below your high-in-the-sky gondola? It’s just one sight you may experience with your grandchild on an awesome learning adventure in Canada’s province of British Columbia. Start the fun as a “city kid” in Vancouver, exploring the oasis of Stanley Park and its beaches, ancient trees and aquarium. Then go north into the mountains on the scenic Sea to Sky Corridor. In the alpine village of Whistler — named after the native marmots’ “whistle” — walk in a rainforest canopy on suspended bridges. Relish the mountain fun, and cap your week back in Vancouver delighting in the renowned Granville Island public market.
