Fit some epic natural sightseeing into your Vancouver vacation with a half-day tour of the area’s gorgeous North Shore. Your personal guide will escort you over the Lions Gate Bridge to the Capilano Suspension Bridge for an exhilarating walk along the cliff-hanging footpaths. Then ride the Grouse Mountain gondola high into the alpine forest and visit native grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife.
What to Expect

Your Vancouver North Shore day trip starts with pickup from Vancouver or Richmond (select hotels only) and a drive over the Lions Gate Bridge, a 5,890-foot (1,823-meter) suspension bridge that offers unparalleled views of Vancouver Harbor, and beyond.

Once you get across to the North Shore, continue on a short drive up the mountain to the Capilano Fish Hatchery (11am departure only). Learn about the life cycle of salmon from your guide and, depending on the season (July - August), watch as they leap their way upriver.

Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, where you'll meander along the surrounding temperate rain forest and learn the traditions of the Indigenous People. Then, walk across the 460-foot (140-meter) bridge to the other side of the river, where you can climb to the canopy and walk through the Treetops Adventure walkway high above the canyon and river below.

For those seeking a more thrilling experience, try the Cliffwalk, the newest attraction at the bridge. This adrenaline-pumping journey will take you through the rainforest on a series of suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face to unexplored territories of the park.

At the Grouse Mountain Skyride, hop on the tram and travel to a 3,937-foot (1,200-meter) viewpoint above the city and enjoy nature’s spectacular view. In the summertime, you can see Mount Baker and Vancouver Island off British Columbia’s coast. You can also get up-close views of grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife.

After your North Shore experience, relax on the drive back to Vancouver.

Please note: You must include hotel information at checkout and call tour operator ahead to confirm.

Suspension bridge is a must do

We loved visiting the suspension bridge and all the different trails. The area is stunning and we enjoyed it even in the rain. The weather didn’t allow for much view on the gondola or top of grouse mountain but we enjoyed visiting the owl and...More

A day trip

The inclement weather meant that Grouse Mountain was covered in fog so we did not see the views. However, the Capilano Suspension Bridge and the surrounding park land was wonderful. Our driver was cheerful and knowledgeable so that the driving distances were not boring.

A natural wonder but slightly over rated, just in my case. Regardless of what they say, it is not walker friendly and in spite of inquiries, I was unable to take the walker over the bridge due to congestion. I had to carry it. Took...More

If there was I wasn't aware of it. The bus driver turns you loose and you are on your own. You have to report back at a certain time. I would call them and ask personally

We went on a drippy foggy day and still had a blast! Just wear ponchos or rain gear!
