Our Travel Styles

Adventure can be defined in many ways. At Discover Canada Tours, we believe that adventure is whatever you make it to be, and we have developed a wide range of packages and tours to suit every type of traveler. We cater to all ages, budgets, interests and fitness levels under five distinctive brands. Choose your travel style below and find out what is the best adventure for you!

For international and domestic visitors of all ages and diverse interests.

 

Led by experienced and knowledgeable guides that know local secrets, our Day Tours invite you to discover the Greater Vancouver Area, Whistler and Vancouver Island while exploring iconic attractions and diverse off-the-beaten path neighborhoods.

We offer daily departures from downtown Vancouver and give city tours of Vancouver, the North Shore, Whistler, Victoria and more. If you have a free day in Vancouver between your stops, this is the perfect opportunity to visit some of the best sights around our beautiful city.

For students, adults, families, couples, seniors, solo travelers and more.

 

The name says it all – our Classic Tours are the ones that we have been running since the beginning. From our first trips to the Rocky Mountains in 2005, we have added multiple tours and destinations to our collection. These tours are best suited to young professionals, families and experienced travelers. They form the core of our business and will take you places that you will never forget.

Quintessential Canadian adventures for mature travelers, couples, seniors and special occasions.

Discover Canada Tours has curated a selection of Premium Tours and Independent Travel Itineraries for those who want to experience Canada and the Pacific Northwest in smaller groups or independently. Our Extraordinary Experiences are once-in-a-lifetime travel packages that explore the remote, exclusive areas and hidden gems of British Columbia’s Interior and Coastal region to the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Southern Alberta, and the Yukon Territory.

Operated by our West Trek brand, for budget-conscious students, young adults and young at heart travelers.

While we don’t put an age limit on these tours, we typically see young adults between the ages of 19-40 joining, as they are more active than our Classic Tours and very social! That being said, there is a little bit of youthfulness in us all. If you are an active and adventurous traveler, these tours are perfect for you!

West Trek is all about fun and adventures. We operate authentic and transformational guided
travel experiences to Western Canada’s wilderness and most iconic destinations, such as the
Canadian Rockies, Whistler, Victoria and Tofino. We also travel beyond the border to the city of Seattle, USA.

Operated by our Destination Snow brand, for winter sports enthusiasts, groups and individuals of all ages and fitness levels.

Destination Snow is the largest winter sports trip specialist in Western Canada. We offer some of the best ski and snowboard guided, private and self-guided group tours to Canada’s top resorts in the Rocky Mountains, interior British Columbia and Whistler. Discover the resorts with the famed champagne powder!

For solo travelers and couples wanting to adventure throughout Western Canada at their own pace.

 

Our Independent Travel Itineraries, and some of our Extraordinary Experiences, let you explore iconic locations and lesser-known regions on your own. These tours feature high-demand activities, such as Wine Tours in the Okanagan Valley and Fraser Valley, Northern Lights viewings in The Yukon, or adventures through the Inside Passage to Vancouver Island and Northern BC.

Tailor-made, private tours or charters for your company, organization, family or special occasions.

 

All of our tours are available for private groups of 10 or more, for those who want a more intimate experience with their loved ones or with their company. We can personalize your tour with great add-ons at a special rate, and we offer group organizer incentives.

As a full-service travel agency, we can also make a custom itinerary that will become the trip of your lifetime! We can take care of flights, transportation arrangements, tour itineraries, hotel accommodations, border assistance, travel insurance and much more.

We also have a fleet of deluxe mini-coaches and vans that may be chartered at vancouverbuscharters.com.
