When choosing a holiday destination, why not go for a place where action is guaranteed. Create stories filled with adventure and come back feeling invigorated and refreshed. British Columbia offers this possibility, with among others, skiing, hiking, golf, and wildlife viewing. This western province of Canada is naturally beautiful with many opportunities for exploration. Check out My Destination British Columbia to read more about the different regions.
Vancouver Island is a great place for snow lovers. Ski the day away in the Mount Washington Ski resort, famous for having deep snow and amazing conditions. For accommodation, traditional chalets and townhouses are available here, and if you are really eager, stay in one of the condominiums by the side of the slopes. Try accommodation Mount Washington to book one and before you know it you will be waking up, grabbing your sunglasses and skiing away.
If you still want to be outdoors, but like traveling a little slower and on flat ground, head to the city of Vancouver. Bring walking shoes and explore the 1,000 acres of Stanley Park, where you will forget you are in a city. Enveloped by the trees you can lose yourself in the wildlife and beauty. There are many hotels near this area, including Best Western Plus Sands, which includes a fitness centre and sauna. http://www.booking.com/ includes this and many more hotels ideal for a stay in Vancouver.
This is the largest city in British Columbia, so there is a lot more to do than explore the park. Being the host to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games shows that winter sports are in abundance here as well. Skiing and snowboarding are of course extremely popular. However, if you want to keep your walking shoes on, there are numerous hiking trails to follow, either independently or as part of a guided tour.
For golf lovers, there are also many areas to suit your interests. Try Furry Creek Golf & Country Club for a relaxing, scenic experience. Stay at Furry Creek B&B which is located on the golf course, so instead of grabbing sunglasses and ski’s, grab sunglasses and golf clubs.
Want more action? How about going to visit some Grizzly Bears. Travel to the Selkirk Mountains, and you will find the Grizzly Bear Ranch. If you are brave enough, visit Grizzly Bear Ranch and stay in a hand-built, private cabin by the riverside. Wherever you choose to travel to in British Columbia, there will be something to excite and entice. Adventures await, so choose your activity and begin your holiday to remember.
