A Taste of Vancouver

Arrive Vancouver and check into your centrally located gay-friendly hotel accommodation where you will stay for the next 3 or 4 nights – you choose!

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.

On your first morning in Vancouver you’ll depart on an amazing “Foodie Tour” with your gastronomic guide.   We’ll provide a fun and energetic experience where you can meet fellow food lovers, explore a new neighbourhood, and get insider tips on the Vancouver culinary scene – local foods, fun times at Vancouver’s most epic eateries!

Tonight, take a trip to the top of Grouse Mountain – The Peak of Vancouver!  This evening savour 5-Star dining at The Observatory, Grouse Mountain's finest and highest restaurant - taking standards of food, beverage, and hospitality to new heights!  We’ve also included the Alpine Experience which includes Skyride and seasonal Plateau Activities like the World Famous Lumberjack Show, the Birds in Motion Demonstration and more. In winter, enjoy sleigh rides, mountaintop ice-skating and access to snowshoe trails. Add on the Eye of the Wind turbine,  the world’s first and only wind turbine that allows you to stand in a clear glass viewPOD at the top of the tower, three metres from its massive, rotating blades with a 360 degree view – ask about it!

Enjoy the morning exploring downtown Vancouver and perhaps do some shopping on trendy Robson Street before heading to Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal.  See the Cruise ships at dock and get ready for a great afternoon experience.  Spend an afternoon travelling through picturesque Fraser Valley Wine Country. Tour wineries; learn how wine is produced, taste award winning celebrated wines and shop at charming winery boutiques. (1/2 day tour)

How about checking out the Vancouver Urban Winery!  Located two blocks off Gastown in the historic heart of Vancouver’s Railtown the winery features a tasting bar where consumers can learn about British Columbia wines, and the exploding wine-on-tap category.  Alongside the tasting bar sits a boutique wine shop full of local items, wine merchandise, artisan foods and beverages……and plenty of wine!

Afterward head over to Celebrities Nightclub on Davie Street in the heart of the Gay Village; a nightlife icon in Vancouver, a premier dance club on the West Coast, and has been since the 1980s.

For those lucky enough to stay on for the fourth night in Vancouver, you are in for a very special treat…Rainbow High Vacations has partnered with Hawksworth Restaurant in the heart of downtown Vancouver.  In keeping with the refined atmosphere and unique character of the hotel, Vancouver's premier chef, David Hawksworth, a native Vancouverite, brings his classically grounded, ingredient-driven cooking style to his signature fine dining restaurant at the luxurious Rosewood Hotel Georgia, one of our featured hotels. Guests experience brilliantly conceived combinations and exquisite presentations of contemporary Canadian cuisine with local ingredients, as David continues his relentless drive for perfection.  Due to the changing nature of Chef Hawksworth’s menus, seasonal ingredients and prices, Rainbow High Vacations is pleased to provide you with a $100 Hawksworth dining voucher for your enjoyment.

Enjoy your taste of Canada’s West Coast!
