Itinerary details

2 NIGHTS VANCOUVER Start things off in the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver, Canada’s cultural mecca which cradles everything from sandy beaches to skyscrapers, framed by majestic mountains. Having been transferred by private car to your historic hotel, Rosewood Georgia, take some time to settle into your luxurious surroundings and take a relaxing dip in the pool, indulge in a spa treatment or sip cocktails in the chic lounge. Once you’ve strolled along the waterfront, dined in the finest restaurants and hit the boutiques and galleries of downtown Vancouver, take a scenic flight to the Gulf Islands on the Mail Run. Glimpse tiny villages below as you land on Saltspring Island, dipping into inviting cafes and exploring the island on foot. Or you might want to zip over to Horseshoe Bay on a seaplane for a seaside dinner, relishing a gourmet meal along with ocean views at the Boathouse restaurant.   4 NIGHTS 70 MILE HOUSE Swap the city for the wilderness as you board a floatplane to Siwash Lake Ranch, a quintessential yet luxurious cowboy ranch encircled by ancient forests and glassy lakes in the heart of British Columbia. You couldn’t feel any closer to nature than at Siwash, where safari-inspired tents make for your rustic chic guestroom, the service is personal and the experience unforgettable. If you want to freshen up after your flight, hit the open-air shower and take in your beautiful surroundings at the same time. Your glamping tent sprawls over 1,000 square feet, with a living room with fireplace, sundeck and a heated bathroom. Get out and explore the wilderness on horseback - you’ll be provided with your own personal horse and you can roam the rugged scenery with a guide or on your own. Whether you are a beginner or expert, the mentoring at Siwash is second-to-none, and Allyson will make sure you are well looked after. If horse riding isn’t your thing, take your pick from other wilderness activities, from fly-fishing and wildlife safaris to biking and swimming in the lakes. All the activities are included in your stay so don’t miss exhilarating opportunities to experience the pristine wilderness. Keep fuelled up on exquisite pasture-to-plate cuisine, washed down with British Columbia wines, beers and premium spirits, and take time to luxuriate in the tented spa or with a session of outdoor yoga.   3 NIGHTS TOFINO Take the floatplane back towards Vancouver, but this time pass over the bustling city and land on the immaculate waters of Clayoquot Sound, surrounded by untamed landscapes and your home for the next few days: Clayoquot Wilderness Resort. Consistently topping the lists of the world's best glamping resorts, Clayoquot is an intimate and exclusive hideaway, with everything included, and with no televisions or phones in sight, it's guaranteed to get you unplugged and back to nature. Your decadent tent is bedecked in earthy yet luxurious finishes like wood stoves, antique furniture, classic books and plush beds. Every evening, the activity directors will tailor-make your activity schedule for the day ahead, depending on weather, animal sightings and your preferences. There's so much to choose from, whether you want to learn how to surf on a secluded beach, kayak along the river or on the sea to find hidden coves, or go fishing for dinner. Otherwise, stay on terra firma and go on wildlife safaris to spot bears, birds, whales and more, and go ziplining, mountain biking and hiking with a First Nations guide. In-between exciting excursions, you'll be treated to delicious locally-sourced cuisine: seafood from the shores nearby, wine from Okanagan and meat from the farms of Fraser Valley. Share stories around the outdoor fireplace at cocktail hour and wind down in the outdoor hot tub - or even try watercolour painting in the lounge.Holiday Name : British Columbia by Floatplane
