  • Tel Aviv – Vancouver

    Flight via Canada, landing in Vancouver, the biggest city in British Columbia and one of the most spectacular cities in North America. Accommodations in Vancouver.

  • Vancouver

    Vancouver is a fascinating city combining a highly-developed cultural life and an impressive downtown area with well-preserved green lungs and a highly-developed environmental consciousness. The city’s location by the Pacific Ocean and at the foot of the British Columbia mountain range makes it an ideal destination. There are many interesting sites, including the Vancouver Aquarium, Granville Island, Vancouver Museum and Stanley Park. Accommodations in Vancouver.

  • Vancouver – Tofino

    Vancouver Island is a large island west of Vancouver city. The Island’s west coast is a wild rocky area, characterized by heavy precipitation. The heavy rainfalls allow for the existence of widespread rain forests, and the ideal conditions allow some trees to reach dozens of meters in height. The day starts with a ferry ride from Vancouver to Nanaimo, on the Island’s eastern shore, and the rest of the day is dedicated to riding along the road that crosses Vancouver Island east to west. The ride ends in Tofino, a cute town that constitutes the center of activity in this area. Accommodations in Tofino.

  • Pacific Rim National Park

    Adjacent to Tofino is Pacific Rim National Park, which contains many hiking trails through rain forests and along the coast. We recommend spending the day exploring the park on foot. In addition, you can go on organized tours from Tofino (not included) to watch bears or whales, or to the hot spring located on a nearby island. Accommodations in Tofino.

  • Tofino – Victoria

    Driving back to Vancouver Island’s east side, towards Victoria. We highly recommend stopping along the way at Cathedral Grove, a forest with ancient, incredible giant trees. Victoria itself is the largest most-central city in Vancouver Island. Accommodations in Victoria.

  • Victoria – Vancouver – Kamloops

    In the morning you take a ferry back to the mainland, to Vancouver. From there you take the road crossing British Columbia west to east and start making your way up to the Rockies, the mountain range crossing West Canada south to north. The ride is about 370-km long, and takes around four hours. Accommodations in Kamloops.
