Spectacular by Nature.

Situated in Southwestern Canada in the province of British Columbia on the coast of the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is sheltered from any extreme weather by Vancouver Island.

This ideal location makes it a great place to experience the outdoors in any season. During our recent stay, we enjoyed the city’s forests, majestic parks and a one-of-a-kind suspension bridge, as well as the shopping and museums. Large assortments of lush outdoor spaces, the largest one being Stanley Park, home to the impressive Brockton Point Totem Poles that tell the stories and histories of First Nations people.

We enjoyed the culture and the heritage as well as the spectacular views as we cycled along the seawall. For a real adventure, take a walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which hovers 230 feet above Capilano River. After a long day of sightseeing, we were ready to replenish, and enjoy good food at Granville Island at the Public Market. Another great option was the Lonsdale Quay, Vancouver’s best view from the North Shore’s waterfront of markets and shops.

More than somewhere to stay, the hip and stylish OPUS Vancouver is set amid the cafés, restaurants and boutiques in Vancouver’s trendy Yaletown district. The OPUS Hotel Vancouver is a 96-room boutique hotel unique with its technology, which includes iPads in every room and mobile phones, that you can use both in and out of the hotel during your stay. A complimentary car service will transport you around town, or ride on one of the hotel’s mountain bikes. The restaurant, Le Pentola della Quercia, is an excellent Italian restaurant featuring the freshest ingredients straight from farm to table. Chef Lucais’ a la carte menu features classic dishes and a lighter twist on traditionally hearty Northern Italian fare; simple, pure flavors shine through.

Vancouver is one of the most temperate cities in Canada with a colorful array of districts and scenic views surrounded by nature making it a perfect ESCAPADITA.
