British Columbia Holidays
British Columbia is what self-driving and getting off the grid in Canada is all about. Walks, wilderness, mountains, coastlines and a laid-back style of living awaits in this beautiful state, no matter what you’re travelling for. Want to take your family horse riding through the pine trees? Maybe share the laughs as you attempt to get upright on a stand-up paddleboard for the first time? Or perhaps you prefer to be pampered in a tranquil forest spa, or sip wines in the Okanagan Valley. Whatever you want for your holiday, your dedicated Flight Centre Travel Expert will be able to help you choose a British Columbia holiday that suits you.

When to Go to British Columbia
Around Vancouver, British Columbia enjoys a temperate climate, bringing mild winters with plenty of snow for skiers, and sunny summers – perfect for hiking. There’s a delightful lack of rain here as precipitation from the Pacific Ocean heads inland and falls as snow over the Rocky Mountains. The spring and autumn are a particularly great time to visit, as the weather and landscapes are pleasant and there are fewer crowds.
