Know More about this tour

Head to a bike rental shop in downtown Vancouver to begin your 3-hour exploration of Stanley Park, a temperate rain forest spanning 1,000 acres (405 hectares). Youll get fixed up with a bike, helmet and lock during a safety briefing. Nature lovers and biking enthusiasts of all skill levels will enjoy this tour covering nearly 6 miles on bicycle-friendly city lanes and park trails.

When youre ready, follow your guides lead into Stanley Park, bounded on three sides by the water. Cruise along the parks perimeter Seawall, a paved bicycle path that affords stunning views of Vancouvers skyline, the North Shore mountains and Burrard Inlet. There will be enough stops to snap pics, and learn about the city's beginnings as a logging town.

Check out the Lost Lagoon, a former tidal flat transformed into a bio-filtration marsh. Hear about the critters, including bald eagles, herons and river otters, that call the area home. There are 15 bald eagle nests in the park; keep your eyes peeled for these majestic birds soaring overhead.

You also get the chance to admire the Brockton Point totem poles, the most-visited monuments in British Columbia. The artistry, unique to the First Nations, provides fascinating insight into the history and culture of the area.

For more nature, venture off into forests of Douglas fir and discover a rain forest, a salmon stream and Beaver Lake. In the center of the park, look up at a 700-year-old cedar tree, a living example of what first attracted explorers to this part of the New World.

Wrap up the tour with some quiet time over at Third Beach, a secluded stretch of sand surrounded by trees at Ferguson Point, before pedaling back to the bike rental shop to return your gear.
