Vancouver and Seattle are two fascinating cities each with unique flavour and character! Experience the best of both Pacific centres on this cross-border journey, as well as a visit to Vancouver Island’s beautiful city, Victoria. Bright city lights make a perfect balance for the glorious floral displays of Victoria’s Butchart Gardens, and the rugged scenery you’ll experience as you cruise through the tranquil coastal waters.
This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"The excursions were also perfect"
I would like to thank whoever put together the itinerary, chose the hotels and wrote the information for us to use en route. Everything was excellent! Each hotel was very good quality, but very different from the others. We saw such a variety of things. Our information led us to places we would never have found without it. The excursions were also perfect (canoeing, whale watching, sea kayaking), each of them very small businesses but with very friendly staff. Everything was very remote, which is what we expected, but we were so glad that we found it and were able to enjoy the essence of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Overall, we couldn't fault anything and we would be very keen to use your services again in the future.
