Vancouver is a very art-and-culture focused city, and local artists have been able to transform many of the city's blank walls into kaleidoscopes of colourful and expressive works of art. Celebrating at the Vancouver Mural Festival or taking a cultural tour to appreciate the street art and enjoy some local food and drink is a great way to experience Vancouver's vibrant city soul.
There are two wonderful places near Banff and Yoho National Parks, where you can walk with wolves in their natural habitat. We love the conservation work that both the Northern Lights Wolf Centre and Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary are undertaking and their public education initiatives. Plus they have respectful and engaging tours too.
