Destination Basics

Located on Canada’s West Coast, Vancouver has some of the most moderate weather in Canada. The average annual temperature here is a mild 10 C. While it does occasionally fall below 0 C in the winter, the cold weather rarely lasts for long.

It’s no surprise that Vancouver is well known as a destination where a raincoat and umbrella are essential year-round. After all, there are on average 166 days of rain per year (with the majority of rain falling between November and March). But don’t let the rain turn you away. Vancouver also has a yearly average of nearly 300 days of sunshine!

Keep in mind that temperatures can vary between five and 10 degrees Celsius depending on where you are in the city in relation to the mountains and ocean. So, make sure you pack a light jacket or sweater and enjoy your stay.

With its mountainous skyline, inner-city beaches, eclectic city culture and vibrant downtown core, Vancouver is unique in more ways than one. This is a place where you can enjoy the best of both worlds – an urban escape and a mountain retreat.

Head downtown for incredible Asian and European cuisine as well as the city’s hip nightlife scene. And don’t forget to check out the unique shops and high-end boutiques (think Louis Vuitton and Hermès) for incredible shopping (and window shopping).

Next, head to nearby Jericho Beach for sun, sand, beach volleyball and gorgeous views of both the mountains and Vancouver cityscape. This city has a wealth of great beaches, but this one is definitely one of the most unique in Canada.

From whale-watching tours on the Pacific Ocean (see pods of orcas up close!), to skiing, to golf, museums, fabulous restaurants, big city entertainment and more, you can see why Vancouver is frequently ranked as one of the top cities to live in the world. In fact, it’s this contrast of fast-paced city life with natural beauty that keeps Canadians and visitors from abroad coming back time and time again.
