Viewing the wildlife

In September we collaborated with Air France to shoot a video to entice visitors from France to visit the Vancouver area. The video is shot through the eyes of a french traveler. This french traveler comes in three forms based on which rental car you choose; a newly wed couple in a convertible, a family person in a family vehicle or traveling with a group of friends in an SUV. The great thing about Vancouver is that there are so many options for those visiting our city that there is always something to suit the needs of every travel to Vancouver. Whether you are looking for museums, beautiful gardens, adventure, culinary or shopping Vancouver has it all.
