Vancouver, British Columbia, is a city of contrasts. The myriad skyscrapers that support the area's dense population sit in stark relief to the pristine bay and lush forests surrounding the city. And nods to the region's diverse cultural heritage are apparent throughout the modern city—from public art to First Nations-inspired architecture.

Vancouver is also home to a thriving Instagram community with frequent InstaMeets and photo walks. Here are just a few Instagrammers sharing their city with the world: @flolum, a chef and photographer frequently out in nature; @akaalec, minimalist black and white photos of architectural patterns; @maurice, a photographer with a love of nature and building patterns; and @othellonine, photos from Vancouver and its lush surroundings.
