Arrive Vancouver and collect your car rental at the airport – or – extend your stay in Vancouver before you head off on your driving holiday!  We have great Vancouver 2 and 3 night packages to choose from – it’s up to YOU! 

Majestic mountains, sparkling ocean, rainforests and beautiful foliage all four seasons make Vancouver one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Canada is known for our people's friendly nature, and Vancouver's citizens take great pride in our welcoming, clean, safe streets - day or night, all year round.  The largest gay population in Western Canada lives in this ocean-wrapped and snow-capped city. Its gay community is centered on two distinctly different neighbourhoods - the West End (mostly gay) and Commercial Drive (a popular neighbourhood for Vancouver’s thriving lesbian community), both of which enjoy a wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and boutiques catering to the LGBT market. 

Finally, you’ll drive into Calgary which sits just east of the beautiful Canadian Rockies and it was here that Ang Lee filmed Brokeback Mountain. While you are here, you might even want to visit some of the locations where they shot.  While in Calgary you might want to check out The Twisted Element Nightclub to see some go-go boys or drag shows! So, extend your Calgary stay or even take in the Calgary Stampede!  We have a great package to add on!
