Vancouver has the best of both worlds: awe-inspiring nature within arm's reach and all the perks of a metropolitan city from craft beers to contemporary art galleries and farm-to-table dining where you can feast on local produce. In Vancouver, you can ski in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon, or perhaps take a hike up Grouse Mountain or walk along the waterfront in Stanley Park - the city's green space that is even larger than New York's Central Park! Book your cheap flights to Vancouver with Student Flights and you'll have more gas money to get you out and about in Vancouver's wilderness. And if you're under 26, a student or a teacher - the maple syrup gets even sweeter! You'll be able to score Black Market Flights deals for even cheaper airfares!
Flights to Vancouver touch down at Vancouver International Airport, the second largest airport in Canada. Located on Sea Island in Richmond and just 12 kilometres from the city, the airport is a hub for Air Canada. You can transfer from the airport to the city centre easily via the express Canada Line train, which takes around 30 minutes to reach the city. Taxis and shuttle bus services are also available. For more information about the airlines that service Vancouver International Airport, see our airline guide.
Epicurean utopia meets outdoor wonderland complete with hip urban cowboys gives Vancouver that big country town feel, but with so much going on from sports to arts, food and adventure, you'll soon realise you're smack-bang in the epicentre of British Columbia. Head over to SoMa (South Main) district and pick up a one-off in an independent designer store. Vancouver is home to a large Asian population too so don't forget your chopsticks for an authentic sushi feast (said to be the best and cheapest on offer in all of North America) after a day in the mountains or exploring the city's parks, waterfront and fashionable galleries.
There's always something to celebrate in Vancouver all year round from film festivals to fringe, comedy, jazz dance and boat events! But if you know your skiing, you'll know British Columbia's mountains are second to none - take your Vancouver trip to the next level with a ski tour. Our cheap Canada ski holiday deals will have you ploughing through snow in no time.
