What You Can Expect

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

Grouse Mountain, Vancouver

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.

Our guide was fantastic, he knew the weather was closing in and rearranged the itinerary so we could go to Grouse Mountain first before the weather closed in.
Excellent trip, highly recommended

Viator was truly a wonderful company to book my tour through as they were there on time, were very knowledgable about the area and very courteous. Our driver/guide was quite entertaining as well! My husband and I had a wonderful day in Capilano and Grouse Mountain. The only issue we had was at Grouse Mountain when we went to have lunch, the restaurants were short-handed with service and we couldn't get lunch. We were texted while we were on the bus on our way back to the hotel with your table is now ready. Really? It wasn't Viator's fault but a gripe nonetheless...otherwise, I would absolutely use Viator again when I need to book a tour with no hesitation.

Our tour guide was phenominal! He was attentive, friendly, knowledgable, and a tremendous host. He even lent a jacket to a tourist from Morocco who could have purchased a jacket, but had no future use for one. This personable young man never flinched when we departed the bus, no Canadian dollars in hand, therefore having no means to tip him. Although my husband and I still regret not tipping, he never made us feel any less welcome when we departed. The experience was breathtaking! I would reccommend everyone taking this tour. Beauty you would not want to miss.

Basil was very accommodating and personable. He knew shortcuts to make up for heavy traffic. The bus could use some AC work though. We had sufficient time at each attraction.
