British Columbia Vacations: See the Wild

British Columbia is wilderness and city. Wander through the world-renowned Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Taste your way through Vancouver’s Granville Market, or visit Vancouver Island for a whale watching tour. Soak in the mineral pools at Harrison Hot Springs, or taste the vintages of British Columbia’s wine country. Whether you’re looking to get away from it all among the Sitka spruce of the UNESCO World Heritage Gwaii Haanas National Park or feel the history of Victoria’s Parliament Buildings, Liberty Travel can craft you a British Columbia vacation package that’s just your pace.
