Vancouver Lookout Tours

24 reviews
Vancouver Lookout
Perched atop a downtown high-rise, this circular observation platform yields panoramic views of glassy skyscrapers, Vancouver Harbour, and the magnificent peaks of the North Shore and Olympic ranges. A glass-enclosed elevator zooms up to the platform so that street scenes seem to shrink before visitors’ very eyes.
 
The Basics
The Vancouver Lookout is an excellent place to familiarize yourself with the city, as most of Vancouver’s main attractions—from Stanley Park to the Harbour Centre to Grouse Mountain—are visible from the deck. Information plaques beneath each window reveal more about the prominent sights within view. Visitors can purchase an admission ticket to use when they choose, or join a sightseeing tour that includes access to the Vancouver Lookout.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Vancouver Lookout is a must for first-time visitors to Vancouver.
  • Bring a camera to capture the far-reaching views.
  • Vancouver Lookout is wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get There
Vancouver Lookout is in the Harbour Centre in downtown Vancouver, within walking distance of Gastown and Canada Place. Take the SkyTrain Expo Line or Canada Line to Waterfront Station. The SeaBus passenger ferry also stops here.
 
When to Get There
Admission tickets are valid all day, so you can scope out the daylight views and return at dusk to witness the city come alight. Though the lookout is usually busier in the evenings, it’s well worth braving the crowds for sunset views.
 
Where to Watch the Sunset in Vancouver
Part of the beauty of Vancouver is its near-to-nature setting, with the mountain peaks, forests, and sparkling waters that surround it making sunsets truly spectacular. One of the best places to watch the sun sink in the sky is the Vancouver Lookout. Kitsilano Beach and Grouse Mountain are also popular sunset-watching spots.
