Canadian Parks West from Vancouver
Amazing experience, unfortunately ruined by Tour leader
Canada is by far the most beautiful country I have been to. Pictures don't even come close to the most amazing scenery you will see on this trip. Breath taking views in every place! This is no restful trip, you are doing something everyday, make sure you bring enough money! Everything is extra and i definitely didn't budget enough. Once in a lifetime trip. Vancouver is a great site with lots of things to see and do, if you like hiking, Stanley park is a fantastic, beautiful and full of wildlife. The kayaking in Tofino is amazing, surrounded by mountains and crystal blue lakes. The Gondola in Whistler is a MUST, make sure you get the chair lift down (glacier express/ solar coaster express) for your best chance of seeing bears! The hot springs were ok, but it was more like a hot swimming pool, although you can not fault the scenery around you! This trip would have been excellent if our tour leader was more experienced. The lack of knowledge and support meant we did not receive the best for money on a number of occasions. Make sure you bring extra money for food as we were not told that we would be eating out quite a few nights. Its the luck of the draw who you get, we were just unfortunate.
