Vancouver is unique in that it’s a world city with a cosmopolitan flair, yet a place that cherishes its close connection to nature and its surrounding environment. Because of this, the peak travel seasons can often over-lap, depending on the activities most sought out. While the summer months of June, July and August traditionally make up the peak season, Canadians and foreign tourists also flock to the area for winter festivals and sports. Finding the best fares to Vancouver during these times requires either some forward planning, with bookings made in advance, or a look at alternate routes via Asia, New Zealand or the US. Midweek travel, and travel outside of the major public or school holidays is yet another way to locate the cheapest Vancouver flights.
