    vancouver bc


    Vancouver, a bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia, is among Canada’s densest and most ethnically diverse cities. A popular filming location, it’s surrounded by gorgeous mountains and invites outdoor and cultural pursuits of all kinds. Vancouver Art Gallery is known for its works by regional artists, while the Museum of Anthropology houses preeminent First Nations collections. Getting your world-class coach training in beautiful Vancouver will provide you with an un-paralleled experience of your lifetime.

    Things To Do In Vancouver

    1. Capilano Suspension Bridge

    Make your way across the swaying suspension bridge, which stretches 137 metres (450 feet) across a canyon and the Capilano River 70 metres (230 feet) below. Then explore the beautifully lush fir- and fern-carpeted forests via a series of elevated suspension bridges in the Treetops Adventure.

    2. Vancouver Aquarium

    The Vancouver Aquarium is home to over 70,000 fascinating creatures from the Arctic to the Amazon. Be sure to catch daily beluga whale, dolphin and sea otter shows, and for an unforgettable extra try a hands-on animal encounter.

    3. Vancouver Lookout

    Located in the downtown Harbour Centre, the Vancouver Lookout, at a height of 130 metres (430 feet), is the perfect place to survey the city and plan – or reflect upon – your day.

    4. Vancouver Art Gallery

    This highly acclaimed collection of national and international contemporary art is worth spending at least an afternoon exploring. Don’t miss the collection of work by the well-known British Columbian artist Emily Carr. Stop in at the Satellite Visitor Centre on the southwest side of the gallery for great information and tips.
