Begin the day with a morning hotel pickup in a comfortable coach. The group will drive over a true Vancouver landmark, the Lions gate bridge, a 5,890-foot (1,823-meter) bridge that offers unparalleled views of Vancouver Harbor, English bay, and beyond.
Once across the Bridge and in the North Shore, the tour continues on a short drive up the mountain to the Capilano Fish Hatchery. Here you will learn about the life cycle of salmon and, depending on the season (July thru August), watch them as they leap their way upriver.
Next, head over to aworld-famous foot bridge, the Capilano suspension bridge, to walk among the towering trees of the surrounding temperate rainforest and learn the traditions of the Coast Salish indigenous people. Then the group will be guided across the infamous 446-foot (136-meter) bridge to the other side of the river to a climb into 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 Capilano suspension bridge. This adrenaline-pumping journey travels through the rainforest on a series of suspended walkways built out from the granite cliff face to give the group access to unexplored territories of the park.
At Grouse mountain, the group will ascend into the coastal mountains by gondola and travel to a 3,937-foot (1,200-meter) viewpoint to enjoy one of the best views in Vancouver overlooking the city. In the summertime, walk along the mountain top meadows and witness the world-famous Lumberjack show. Visit Grinder and Coola, two resident grizzly bears and enjoy a 'Birds in Motion' demonstration at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife. Attend a movie at the 'Theatre in the Sky' before heading back.
