Flight connections to Vancouver are available through European cities such as London and Frankfurt, or Asia through Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai/Seattle to name a few.

Getting Around

A car is an ideal way to travel if you prefer to get around and see the sights independently and at your own pace. The province's highway and road system is extensive, well signed and well maintained.

Renting a car is simple: many car rental companies operate in airports and urban areas. And remember to drive on the right-hand side of the road.

If you have a jam-packed travel schedule, or are trying to reach some of the more out-of-the-way places in BC, you might want to opt for the convenience of air travel by plane, seaplane or helicopter.

A memorable way to experience the coastal areas of the province is by ferryBC Ferries is one of the largest, most sophisticated ferry transportation systems in the world, with a fleet of 38 vessels serving 47 ports of call. No matter which route you choose, you can expect to see breathtaking scenery and plenty of fascinating marine wildlife.

For those of you who prefer to sit back and enjoy the scenery while travelling in style, make rail travel your transport of choice. You'll view some of the province's most spectacular sites while riding the rails in comfort.

Perfectly situated, Vancouver is the ideal home port to begin or end an Alaskan cruise adventure.  In addition, British Columbia welcomes many cruise lines to the area en route to Alaska, with ports of call in Victoria, Nanaimo and Prince Rupert.
