Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a 10-day active family adventure in Canada. Prices for a family of two adults and two children travelling together. Each package includes accommodation, flights from the UK departing on Saturday 21 July and car hire.
Includes Air Transat flights from Gatwick to Vancouver, a week at the Listel Hotel in Whistler and three nights at the Sandman Suites in Vancouver (both room only), with Peak2Peak gondola ride and whale-watching trip.

Includes Virgin flights from Heathrow to Vancouver, three nights at the Ramada Vancouver, four at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and three at the Royal Scot Suite Hotel on Vancouver Island (all room only).
