Vancouver

Fly to Vancouver, transfer to the Rosewood Hotel Georgia for a 3 night stay. Framed by mountains and vast expanses of water, Vancouver is a city of impeccable beauty, both in its aesthetic and spirit. The winding paths around Stanley Park are a cyclists dream, just as the city's seafood is a food connoisseur's delight. Those seeking refuge from shopping-filled days and sporting activities head to Spanish Banks Beach, where leisurely strolls and beach barbecues are the order of the day. (RO)
