Day 01: Arrival in Vancouver

Arrive at Vancouver airport and complete your immigration. Later transfer to the hotel. The rest of the day is kept free for leisure. Overnight at Vancouver.

Day 02: Vancouver - Granville Island

After breakfast proceed to the foot of Stanley Park to rent bicycles and cycle to the seawall and into the park. This is Vancouver’s most popular green space and at 400 hectares. Take a photo-stops at places such as the totem poles, Prospect Point lookout, and the beaches. Continue along the seawall past scenic English Bay, then head over the bridge to Granville Island. Park your bikes and stroll the island’s streets, exploring the many galleries, theatres, studios, and workshops. Later after lunch proceed to Ecomarine Paddlesports Centre to take your summer adventure to the water. They offer tours, lessons, and straight rentals of both kayaks and paddleboards, and can accommodate everyone from absolute beginners to advanced experts. Later head back over to the downtown peninsula aboard a False Creek or Aquabus ferry to Yaletown, and then ride back to your bike rental shop via the seawall. Make the short walk over to the marina in Coal Harbour in time for an early evening Sea Vancouver tour. These are fast, fun zodiac tours of the waters around the downtown peninsula which takes you towards the North Shore, under the Lions Gate Bridge, around Stanley Park, and down False Creek. Overnight at Vancouver.

Day 03: Vancouver - Grouse Mountain

After Breakfast proceed to explore Vancouver’s North Shore with Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge Tour. Take the first stop at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, where you’ll make your way along the namesake bridge swaying 450 ft (135 m) above the Capilano River. The park is also home to the CliffWalk cantilevered walkway jutting out over the canyon, and Treetops Adventure, a canopy-walk of seven small suspension bridges anchored high-up among the Douglas firs. Then learn about the lifecycle of salmon with a visit to the Capilano Salmon Hatchery, before making your way to the base of Grouse Mountain. Take the scenic Skyride gondola to the peak, and then you’re free to indulge your senses as you explore this alpine landscape. For many, the highlight is a visit with the mountain’s two resident grizzly bears, Grinder and Coola, watching them in their habitat as they sleep, hunt, eat and play. The hilarious lumberjack show is a demonstration of both athleticism and classic Canadian humour, while the many hiking paths offer a chance to explore the mountaintop environment. Later enjoy a relaxed evening with dinner in Vancouver’s most historic neighbourhood, Gastown. Water Street offers lots of popular stores and souvenir shops, as well as respected galleries, especially those representing Indigenous artists. Side streets are home to independent local boutiques and some of the city’s coolest restaurants. Overnight at Vancouver.

Day 04: Fly back to hometown

Post breakfast check out from the hotel and get ready to fly back home with loads of memories.
