Your Vancouver North Shore day trip starts with pickup from Vancouver (select hotels only) and a drive over the Lions 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 as they leap their way upriver.
Next, head to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, where you'll meander along 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, 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.
Please note: You must include hotel information at checkout and call tour operator ahead to confirm.

We loved the whole experience. We even saw the 2 grizzly bears and the wolf on Grouse Mountain.
I had a great time, our guide was very knowledgeable and nice. The peaceful landscape and nature is was great to get a break from my city travel. The food was excellent.
Great tour, very informative. We took this tour this first day of our week long trip to Vancouver. Great day and gave idea for the next days
you cannot go to Vancouver and not go to Capilano suspension bridge and Grouse Mountain. Very well organised tour and well worth the money
Scary and thrilling at the same time, especially when it got busy and trying to cross the suspension bridge, 'twas great fun. The view from Grouse mountain is extraordinary and a view I will remember. The tour guide was exceptional and very knowledgable. Again another fantastic excursion and would recommend people to use this company. When I go abroad again, I will definitely seek out this company.
Absolutely brilliant trip, Kelly was fantastic, customer service second to none.
fantastic experience! highly recommended
Our guide was awesome. I really didn't understand why we needed the time we did up on the Mountain. Now I get it. The bird show was amazing. The lumberjack show pretty low level staged humor...not for me. Loved Capilano, just be prepared for lots of people. So you can't just stand on the bridge and look down. Lots of lines of people, but it is awesome to do. I actually did the fish ladder in Seattle and I liked the fish hatchery setup much better. It was easier to see and the fish were jumping way more there than in Seattle.
Despite a rainy day, we loved the trip. Only disappointment was no view from the top of Grouse Mountain. We were fortunate enough to see the Bears there up close and personal!!! Our guide was awesome.
Awesome tour and experience!
