THINGS TO DO IN VANCOUVER



Vancouver is located on the west coast of Canada in British Columbia. Vancouver is one of Canada’s largest and most densely populated cities. It boasts stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The city has access to an array of outdoor pursuits and also boasts thriving arts, music and museum scenes. There is never a shortage of activities to do in Vancouver; we have listed our favourites below. 

Stanley Park

Stanley

Stanley Park is a 405-hectare public park that borders the downtown of Vancouver. Explore the natural West Coast rainforest and enjoy scenic views of water, mountains, sky, and majestic trees along Stanley Park's famous Seawall. Discover kilometres of trails, beautiful beaches, local wildlife, great eats, natural, cultural and historical landmarks, along with many other adventures. The park offers a wide range of unforgettable experiences for all ages and interests, including Canada’s largest aquarium. 


Whale Watching

Whale

From March to October each year, thousands of whales migrate through the waters near Vancouver, making it one of the world’s best locations for whale watching. The floating classrooms serve as a premium platform for provoking thought & educating guests who are naturally curious about killer whales & the other wild creatures that call the Salish Sea home.



Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

Suspension

Appreciate nature from three breathtaking perspectives - Capilano Suspension Bridge, Treetops Adventure cliffwalks. Capilano Suspension Bridge crosses to towering evergreens, cedar-scented rainforest air and Treetops Adventure, 7 suspended footbridges offering views 110 feet above the forest floor. The new Cliffwalk follows a granite precipice along Capilano River with a labyrinth-like series of narrow cantilevered bridges, stairs and platforms and only 16 anchor points in the cliff supporting the structure!



Robson Street

Robson

Robson Street is a must-stroll for most visitors to Vancouver. One of Vancouver’s oldest commercial streets, it was once known as Robsonstrasse for the sheer number of German and European stores that opened up after the Second World War.
