A strange thing happens when you arrive in Vancouver, British Columbia. Your senses awaken.
Vancouver's location in British Columbia gives travellers incredible opportunities to explore outdoor adventure and unique cultural activities from the convenience of a world-class city.
This is a region of Canada that appeals to all five senses, especially during the cherry blossom season every spring. As you'll discover in this Destination BC video, kayaking a coastal fjord in North Vancouver has more in common with a traditional Japanese tea ceremony or aboriginal wood carving than you may first think.
"Come To Your Senses: Touch" follows a kayaker exploring Indian Arm outside North Vancouver, a wood carving artist at the Aboriginal Gathering Place at Emily Carr University on Granville Island, and a traditional Japanese usucha tea ceremony at the Nitobe Memorial Gardens at the University of British Columbia.
