What You Can Expect
Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Meander among the towering trees of this temperate rainforest and learn the traditions of the indigenous First Nations’ peoples. Then walk across the 446-foot (136-meter) bridge to the other side of the river, where you can climb to the canopy and stroll through the Treetops Adventure walkway high above the canyon and river below. For those seeking a more thrilling adventure, try Clifffwalk, the newest attraction at the bridge. This heart-stopping 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, take the tram 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. Get up close to grizzly bears with only a thin wire fence between you and them. On top of this beautiful mountain on a clear day, you can see Mount Baker and Vancouver Island off British Columbia’s coast.
For pre-cruise tours, you’ll be driven to your cruise ship terminal, where you and your bags will board your ship.
We absolutely enjoyed this tour of the North Shore. We had a great driver/tourguide and it was such a pleasure to arrive on our cruise ship and find our luggage waiting at our stateroom door. Well worth it.
Without a doubt, this is an excellent way to: 1. Tour before your 5 p.m. sailing, 2. See the north island, 3. Have your bags taken right to your cabin. The swing bridge is fascinating, it takes you to a temperate rain forest on the other side and lots of nature trails. Back to the bus and your short ride then to Grouse Mountain allows the ascent of this magnificent area with literally too much to do. Highly recommended is the lumberjack show; this does have intelligent humor and some really talented 'jacks' and one heart stopping surprise. It is included with the gondola lift tickets. On top of the mountain you can also gaze for miles, zip, see bears, take the chair lift, dine, walk and take in some unbelievable tree carvings. Short bus ride to the dock then, where we found our luggage already in our cabin. Highly recommend this tour.
