Magical Day Trips From Vancouver 

Robert’s Creek, Sunshine Coast

Nestled in between Gibsons and Sechelt is the quaint Robert’s Creek. The vibrant arts community often has craft shows, live music, as well as lots of gorgeous scenery to take in. Go for a bite to eat at their beloved Gum Boot Restaurant or café. If you’re looking for a more unique style of accommodation, stay in an Airbnb micro cabin.

Scandinave Spa, Whistler

A little slice of heaven that is totally worth the day trip. Make the scenic drive out to Whistler and then unwind in one of the many Scandinavian baths at the spa. To get even more relaxed, visit their ‘hammock haven’ overlooking the spa, read a book or doze off to the sounds of nature.

Nothing beats the scenic views along the Sea to Sky Highway. Soak up the sights and then check out the cascading Shannon Falls. Hike along the lush trails and have a picnic with the most picturesque backdrop.
