After various debates and discussions as to where out next holiday should be me and my family decided to travel further a field to Canada. Whats even better is that we decided to make a road trip out of it and not just stay in one place. With the help of AirBnB we picked an array of rentals from Vancouver to Kelowna to Deep Cove to Vancouver Island. The experience was so worth it, however expensive it was eek.
Our first location was Vancouver and our house was perfectly placed upon a hill overlooking the city. After arriving late at night and taking a well deserved rest we headed out the next morning to the city, had brunch and took a walk around the gorgeous Stanley Park (I highly recommend visiting!).
After a couple of days in Vancouver we headed over to Kelowna and then Golden. In Golden we witnessed the most incredible low lying clouds floating across the mountains. Following a variety of gorgeous pit stops we travelled on to next visit Lake Louise and Lake Moraine. The water was indisputably clear and a captivating turquoise. You are able to walk around the side of each lake and even though they may take a while its so worth it!
Following a buys few days we took a break and stopped at Pavilion (basically a massive lake). We borrowed kayaks and stand up boards (from the owner of the house) and spent two days chilling.
After recuperating we travelled on down to Deep Cove and then took a ferry to Vancouver Island the next day. Something we all definitely wanted to see was whales so we paid big bucks and spent four hours on a boat in search of the creatures. Unlike the two earlier boat rides we were lucky enough to actually find Orcas amongst other creatures such as porpoises, seals, sea lions and an otter.
During our final days we took a couple of walks around some less appreciated locations such as Lynn Valley and Elk Falls Provincial Park. The views were amazing especially from the suspension bridge in Elk Falls.
