Trip Ideas

Urban Rainforest Parks

One of the things that makes British Columbia unique is the fact that its major cities are so close to nature. Whether you’re exploring the arts scene in Victoria, or the shopping in Vancouver, you are never far from an amazing place to escape and go for a walk in a rainforest. Go for an invigorating hike, channel your inner naturalist, or just to enjoy the tranquility of a park before heading back into the city for a delicious dinner at an award-winning restaurant.
