Description

This trip is perfect for future marine biologists and wildlife lovers! It combines two of the best city attractions in Vancouver and Victoria (an adrenaline-rushing zipline adventure and the Vancouver Aquarium or Science World) with a “walk on the wild side” on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast. In Vancouver, a two-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel puts you in the heart of downtown, close to Robson Street and Stanley Park, while the Wilderness Outpost is a perfectly rustic, 21st-century safari-style enclave. Everywhere, you’ll enjoy fine Pacific Northwest cuisine featuring locally caught seafood. Other trip highlights include the seaplane “transfers” themselves—with exquisite views of the Gulf Islands, Strait of Georgia, and Vancouver Island mountains.

Note: Price is based upon a family of two adults and two children, peak season departure.

Trip to Canada

By: Jim


Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2017

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.

Entree Canada was great. There was a contact at the airport waiting for us to help get the trip started on the right foot. We loved all the guides they recommended for us - they fun and knowledgable, and took us to places both on and off the beaten path. Entree checked in with us during the trip as well to make sure that everything was running smoothly which was a nice touch.

Entree Canada was a great partner with our travel agent to make our Honeymoon a trip we will never forget. In each leg of our trip, we felt like we were being taken care of and that they would only provide us the best. The seamless travel experience made for some exceptional first few days as a married couple and thankful for all they did to help us make those memories.
