    This is a must visit in Vancouver. This is beautiful place. Try to go early on a weekday. You pay for parking, but there is no free parking in Vancouver.

    This was my third visit over the years to the park with my now-teen son. Each time, we arrive about 20 mins before the park opens and head straight to the suspension bridge to get some pics before others arrive. It is a beautiful location for a walk and some fresh air. Lovely trails, nice food options (my son got a kick out of the 'otter balls'), prices in the shop seemed high but some great items (we picked up a banana snail plush!) My favourite spot though, is where kids can compare their own 'wing' span with a falcon/raven etc. I've taken pics of my son in this spot when he was four, six and now fourteen - there is no better souvenir! Tickets are a bit pricey but well worth it!

    A free shuttle bus runs regularly to Grouse Mountain and back from Canada Place, downtown Vancouver, which takes around 25 minutes.

    We arrived and got straight onto the gondola without any queuing.

    Once at the top there was plenty to do, if we had realised that there was so much to do and see we would've tried to arrive earlier! But in the time we had we did well! Bears, birds, lunch, chairlift to the summit, and we even watched the amazing Lumberjack Show, which, as I said was amazing!

    And as I said previously, the views back over Vancouver are stunning, the closer to the sky you are the better the views!

    At $79.00pp, I'd say it's good value for money.

    Fantastic nature trail composed of stones and log stairs for 800m elevation over 3 kilometres. One hour is doable with no breaks if you are ok-conditioned. Sneakers are good at least if no rain. Fun fact: Canucks hockey player Daniel Sedin did this 11 times a day with average 1h/round.

    Having visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, out guided tour then took us up to the Grove Mountain Ski Area. We rode the Mountain Skyride for access to the top and found it all a great experience. At the top, we were able to purchase lunch (even if the prices seemed over the top) but wandered around to enjoy the views overlooking Vancouver as well as visit the 2 grizzly bears kept up there and went to the free lumber jack show which was entertaining with a real comedy theme running through it.
    Added to the morning trip to Capilano Park it made for a very good outing.

    This is an intermediate hike with lots of climbing. It’s not a very long hike and will take roughly 45 minutes to climb up. The views from the top is very beautiful

    Nice little ski hill with lots of easy runs. The snow was quite good. Affordable prices compared to some other ski hills around here…

    We had tickets for Grouse Mountain that included the Eye of the Wind. Unfortunately the weather was awful but we went up anyway.
    It takes about a minute in the lift and at the top is a small circuit walkways with windows that give unrestricted views. In higher winds the you can feel a slight sway.
    You have to be accompanied and there is obviously a restriction on the number of people who can be at the top at the same time.

    Seeing the wildlife and going to the really quiet island. Our guide, Gabe took us to such peaceful spots. Great to see purple starfish, seals, even a chipmunk.

    Hi Isaac and Bryn!
    My favourite zipline crewing of all times!
    Thank you so much for one of the best zipline experiences that I had in a long time. You really took great care of me and showed me the beautiful views of Grouse Mountain. I loved your stories on the seat lift and enjoyed spending time with you. To be exact 1 hour because we set the record to 5 ziplines in 1 hour!
    It was such a special trip.

    Have a great summer!

    Ellie

    AMAZING. I was flying in the sky like a bird. So freeing. Very nice guide. He was amazing pointing out things I didn’t know existed. I did not want the adventure to end! Wonderful flying over the Capilano Dam. I highly recommend paragliding at Grouse Mountain.

    We are MTB fanatics and booked a tour with Endless Biking to show us the trails around Vancouver as we heard they are epic. The tour did non disappoint. Our tour lead Alyster was awesome, he prepped our rental bikes, gave us the details on the plan and asked what we wanted to accomplish. But most importantly, once up there, he will stop and explain each trail and section we were doing to make sure we knew what to expect and enjoyed the most. It was a great way to experience one of the best places in the world to MTB!
