Completely updated, this new edition of Frommer's British Columbia & the Canadian Rockies will show you the best of Vancouver, the hottest destination in North America, where you can enjoy cutting-edge Asian-fusion cuisine and experience firsthand its vibrant arts and nightlife scene. Then we'll take you into some of the most spectacular, unspoiled countryside on the continent, where you can enjoy whale watching, sea kayaking, canoeing, wildlife viewing, downhill skiing, wine tasting, hiking, biking, and more.
In the Rockies, you'll get full coverage of gorgeous Banff and Jasper National Parks, and we'll also take you to the glowing glacial waters of Lake Louise. Our authors have traveled every inch of this vast region, and they've chosen the best places to stay: wilderness lodges, guest ranches, elegant B&Bs, mom-and-pop motels, secluded campgrounds, and luxury resorts. With Frommer's in hand, it's a snap to design the Canadian adventure that's right for you.
