Vancouver: Vancouver is Canada´s 3rd largest city beautifully situated with ocean and mountains surrounding the city. The city boasts Stanley park with a 10 thousand acre park of forest, beaches, cicling and running paths. With the beauty of the natural environment and the city's role as a haven for former hippies and counter-culture types, it is not too surprising that organisations such as Greenpeace sprang up here. But Vancouver is also the commercial and cultural heart of Canada's West Coast and a major convention and tourist destination.
