Itinerary:

Day 1 Vancouver    
Fly into Vancouver and transfer downtown to your hotel, home for the next three nights. Perhaps stay at the Listel Hotel Vancouver, known for its local First Nations artwork.            

Days 2-3 Vancouver  
Vancouver is a vibrant metropolis, but its roots are in First Nations culture. Perhaps seek out their customs and history at the UBC Museum of Anthropology, which houses over 700 ethnographic and archaeological objects from British Columbia’s First Nation communities. For a different perspective, why not take a tour of the city by bike and pass by Stanley Park’s colourful totem poles and bustling Granville Island Market or enjoy spectacular canyon views at Capilano Suspension Bridge.            

Day 4 Vancouver to Haida Gwaii    
Transfer back to Vancouver Airport for your flight to Masset on Haida Gwaii, a rugged and enchanting archipelago of 450 islands and home for thousands of years to the Haida people. On arrival, transfer to Haida House, your base from which to explore this beautiful, culture rich region.        

Days 5-7 Haida House, Haida Gwaii
Haida House is owned by the Haida people, who have developed an intimate and selfsustaining relationship with their surrounding environment. Over the next three days, guided trips will educate you in the ecology, flora, fauna and traditions of this unique land. Led by local guides, walk through ancient rainforests, explore the rugged shoreline teeming with marine life and learn about the Haida culture and customs.            
   
Day 8 Haida Gwaii to Whistler        
Enjoy a final breakfast at the lodge before transferring back to Masset to pick up your return flight to Vancouver and onwards transfer to Whistler. Just two hours north of the city, Whistler is a lively year round resort set against a stunning mountain backdrop.

Days 9-10 Whistler      
Whistler is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and you can choose to hike or bike in the spectacular terrain, soar through the mountain valleys on an enthralling zipline tour or spend a relaxing afternoon by one of the pretty alpine lakes. Perhaps visit The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, an award-winning museum featuring interactive exhibits showcasing the living customs of the local Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations.      

Day 11 Whistler      
Transfer back to Vancouver airport to catch your flight home.
