Experience Vancouver's beautiful surroundings on this 5- or 6-hour guided North Shore tour. After crossing Vancouver Harbor via the landmark Lions' Gate Bridge, you'll cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge -- the world's longest suspension footbridge -- and take a ride on the Grouse Mountain Skyride. You'll also get up-close views of grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife!


  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Exclusive after-hours access

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

Once you get across 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 them as they leap their way upriver!

Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, where you'll meander among the towering trees of the surrounding temperate rainforest and learn the traditions of the indigenous First Nations’ people. Then, walk across the 446-foot (136-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, amble along the mountaintop meadows and witness the Logging Sports show. On a clear day, you can see Mt 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.

This was a great tour! They were right on time and met us in the lobby of our hotel. As we made our way through town on our way to the North Shore, the guide showed us several of the interesting sights that we passed and made some really good recommendations for restaurants and things to see. We started with Capilano, which was absolutely beautiful. We arrived early enough to beat the crowds, which was great. We had ample time to take in the bridge, tree-top walk and cliff walk at leisure. We then headed up to Grouse Mountain where we took the gondola up into the clouds to the top. The Lumberjack show was fun and close to the bear enclosure. We had plenty of time for a nice lunch as well. The views from Grouse Mountain are amazing! This was a great way to get out of the city and see some of the natural beauty that Vancouver has to offer. Highly recommended!

A varied and most enjoyable, professionally run tour. Despite it being the only day of our stay that the weather was reasonably good, the Grouse Mountain element was disappointing as we disappeared in the clouds half way up, several activities/facilities were closed and it was bitterly cold. Even the two grizzly bears, the highlight, seemed ready for hibernation! I've given it five stars as the weather is not in the control of the operator and all but Grouse Mountain was excellent.
