What You Can Expect

Vancouver North Shore Day Trip with Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain

Capilano Suspension Bridge, Canada

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Wonderful trip, well organised, small group and the guide was a true local and even changed the schedule due to the weather, which unfortunately was wet and windy at Grouse Mountain, but umbrellas and ponchos were at the ready for us all and didn't detract from the beauty of it all. Great value and well worth the time!

Fantastic trip! Tour bus arrived at correct time right outside the hotel. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Fisheries part of the tour was interesting, if that's your sort of thing. Suspension bridge park was excellent, although we had brilliant weather and can imagine it being pretty bad in poor conditions. Grouse mountain was also great and we were able to wonder around on our own, as opposed to constantly being in the tour group.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Definitely one of the major highlights of our holiday. Joel our guide for the tour was top notch as he had so much local knowledge to share with us. I'm terrified of heights, but I was to beat this fear in order to conquer the Capilano Suspension Bridge which I'm pleased to say I did. It was a truly fantastic experience. Grouse Mountain was superb, especially seeing the resident grizzly bears and the lumberjack show.

Very good tour. Our guide/driver was excellent and did a great job. The bridge tour was really crowded, wish we could have gone on day when everyone else was not going!!
The grouse mountain was fun and easy to walk around and enjoy all the entertainment. Really like the tram ride.
The trip to the fish hatchery could have been skipped.
Would do the trip again and highly recommend/
