North Shore and City Combination Tour (Hotel Guests)
This full day tour will show you the best of the city and the natural beauty of the North Shore.
You will depart the city and cross the Lions Gate Bridge, to reach North Vancouver and then on to the amazing temperate rainforest of Vancouver's North Shore. This is your best option for a light, half-day excursion into the stunning nature that surrounds the city. Your guide will also give you more information on this modern city and its surroundings as you tour.
Continue on to your next stop at the Capilano Suspension Bridge park. Trek along the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is raised 230 feet above the Capilano River and crosses a span of 450 feet. Enjoy the park's Treetop Adventures and venture across a series of elevated suspension bridges while walking among magnificent Douglas fir trees that cover the forest floor. While on your North Shore tour in Capilano Suspension Bridge park, brave the Cliff Walk. Suspended walkways meander through rainforest vegetation and jut out from granite cliffs. Many of the high, narrow walkways feature glass floors, which are all that separate you from the magnificent canyons hundreds of feet below.
Next, you will ascend 3,700 feet above Vancouver as you ride up the Grouse Mountain skyride. From this impressive height, view the city, Pacific Ocean, and Gulf Islands below as they get smaller and smaller as you ride higher and higher up the mountain. Once at the top, take the opportunity to enjoy Grouse Mountain's many attractions. Depending on the season you travel, you will see lumberjack shows, grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, and even theatre presentations.
Returning to the city, you will have a short break before meeting your new guide who will give you a wonderful taste of what our city has to offer. You will take a 2 hour drive which will show you the sights of the city. Stop to see the story poles in the 1001 acre Stanley Park and enjoy the panoramic views of beautiful downtown Vancouver, travel through English Bay, Chinatown, and Gastown. You will be returned to your hotel in the late afternoon.
