May and June and September and October are great times to visit Vancouver. The summer crowds are starting to melt away and the weather is generally good. Early spring and late autumn are great times to go whale watching.

Late fall is very rainy. If you don’t mind getting wet you may be able to get discounts on travel and accommodations. Winter, especially the months of January and February, can be cold and snowy.

Overview

The city by the Pacific Ocean is framed by snow-capped mountains and shimmering seas. Vancouver’s climate (milder than the rest of Canada’s), natural wonders, friendly multicultural vibe, gastronomy and shopping mark it out as a must-visit city. Once travellers arrive on their flights to Vancouver, they may just decide to spend the rest of their lives there. Vancouver is a regular in the list of most livable cities.

A multicultural mosaic, there are busy Chinese, East Indian and Italian districts. The heart of the city beats most strongly in the 400-hectare Stanley Park. It contains such world-famous features as Siwash Rock, the Lost Lagoon and the 8.8km seawall walk. Within a 30-minute drive of downtown Vancouver are Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour, all with night-skiing facilities.

BC Ferries sails the Georgia Strait connecting Vancouver with Vancouver Island (and, of course, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia), and the gulf islands – Galiano and Saltspring are the best known. Within closer reach is Bowen – just a 20-minute ferry trip from Horseshoe Bay – an enchanting little island where the rain forest meets the ocean.

How long is the flight to Vancouver?

If you’re flying to Vancouver from Calgary, you’ll be on the airplane for about 1h 30m. Other short flights include trips from Winnipeg (3h) and Edmonton (1h 35m). You’ll have a wide selection of airlines and flights to choose from when flying Montreal to Vancouver. Its quickest flight is 5h 20m with Air Canada. Trips to farther away cities like Quebec City and St. John’s will take a little longer. Flights to St. John’s will take less than 10h, and the trip to Quebec City less than 8h.

Where can you get direct flights to Vancouver?

Direct flights into Vancouver are possible from Ottawa and Montreal aboard Air Canada. The shortest of these nonstop flights will take from 5h to 6h of travel. From the Toronto Pearson Airport, there are also several nonstop flights to Vancouver. Flair Airlines, Transat, Air Canada, and WestJet all offer direct flights to Vancouver from Toronto. Although there are no direct flights, you can flights with only one connection when taking a trip to Vancouver from Kingston or Windsor. Most of these flights are with Air Canada.

How do you get from Vancouver International Airport to the city centre?

Downtown is only a 30-minute train ride from the airport. You can access the train station directly from Arrival Hall. Also outside of this area, you can hail a taxi. A taxi ride to downtown Vancouver should take about 20m. Some of Vancouver’s most popular taxi companies include the Yellow Cab and Vancouver Taxi. If you’d prefer a more private mode of transportation, consider renting a car. The rental car centers are on the ground floor near the parking garage. Some companies with offices at the Vancouver International Airport include the Alamo, Dollar Thrifty and Avis.

What are some things to do in Vancouver?

Outdoor activities such as skiing, ice skating, hiking, and sailing are just a few things that you can do during your visit to Vancouver. You can also shop for antiques, jewelry or vintage clothing on Granville Island (just across from the downtown area), in Gastown or on Main Street or Robson Street in the heart of the city. You might also want to tour some of Vancouver’s most popular landmarks such as Capilano Suspension Bridge, Science World, Van Dusen Botanical Garden, and Vancouver Aquarium.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Vancouver?

The city of Vancouver is located in the Province of British Columbia in the Western part of Canada. Flying into this seaport city from other cities in Canada, you won’t need a passport. The airline crew will, however, require that you show a government-issued, picture identification before you board the plane.

Vancouver climate

Vancouver has a maritime climate. The winters are fairly mild with little snow. Given its location on the Pacific Coast, it’s no surprise that Vancouver gets a lot of rain. Travellers taking trips to Vancouver in the winter months should pack a rain jacket – or two. The summer months are glorious with lots and lots of sunshine. Average temperatures are in the low 20s Celsius (70s Fahrenheit). Early Fall weather can be beautiful too.

Getting around Vancouver

Vancouver’s public transportation system, TransLink, consists of an efficient and reliable network of electric trolley buses, SeaBus passenger ferries, buses, the SkyTrain elevated light-rail and West Coast Express trains. Save some money by buying a FareSaver book of ten tickets, which you can find at newsagents. You can also get a day pass for unlimited travel on buses, SkyTrains and SeaBuses. Don’t rent a car and save yourself the hassle of dealing with congested traffic. You can hail a taxi on the street if you need one, or you can pedal yourself around the city one of the 16 cycling routes covering 129km of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods.
