North Vancouver & Capilano Suspension Bridge Tour

1. North Vancouver & Capilano Suspension Bridge Tour

Nestled at the mountains’ base and shrouded in the forests that blanket the landscape, the North Shore is a treat and a not-to-be-missed day tour. Upon leaving downtown Vancouver, you will travel over Lions Gate Bridge and land on the North Shore. From here you will continue on to The Shipyards District, one of the city’s oldest and fastest growing urban neighbourhoods with its rich shipbuilding history. Home to the Lonsdale Quay Market, The Polygon Gallery, and Burrard Pier, this area is situated along North Vancouver’s vibrant waterfront offering unobstructed views of Vancouver’s stunning skyline to the south and the soaring North Shore mountains to the north. Next, continue your journey up the mountain to Cleveland Dam, a 91-meter (100 yard) high concrete dam at the head of the Capilano River providing the fresh drinking water for the region. Walk across the dam to bathe in the mountainous views. Continue on your journey and arrive at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park to explore this wonderland of nature. Take the heart-quickening walk across this iconic bridge high above the canyon floor. Explore the 7 suspended footbridges in Treetops Adventure, walk the cantilevered bridges adhered to a granite rock face at Cliffwalk, and stroll along elevated boardwalks through the temperate West Coast rainforest learning from interpretive panels along the way. Finally, you will enjoy a scenic tour back across the iconic Lions Gate Bridge to where your tour began.

What people are saying about North Vancouver

This was a great tour. We were picked up at our hotel by Nola. She was awesome and gave us a lot of great information about the area. We joined the rest of the group and set our for our adventure. Leslie was our guide and he was awesome. 24 in our group. We made a few extra stops at sights that were nice to see. Plenty of restrooms where we went. The Capilano suspension bridge was on my bucket list. It was awesome and we went on some other paved hikes - cliff walks and treetops adventure. Really incredible views. Beautiful place. There are a couple shops and restaurants you can visit there too. Grouse mountain was great too. We highly recommend this tour. Appropriate for all ages.

An enjoyable day!!

The trip to the Capilano Park was very enjoyable. I especially liked the tree top walk and the cliff walk. Crowded in parts but the scenery was spectacular. The side trip to the fish hatchery was worth a short stop. Grouse Mountain was also very scenic. The grizzly bears were active and easily seen. Good to see that they have a large enclosure which gives the privacy that they deserve. The raptor show was very informative and a great opportunity to see a number of birds up close. Our guide (Dave) was very personable and kept us on track throughout the day.

A great day out with our fantastic tour guide Mike.

Excellent trip. Plenty of time is given at both locations which enables you to see all the attractions on offer. Mike our driver and guide was knowledgable and also very funny. Being able to jump the queues at Capilano Suspension bridge was a real benefit as it was very busy with hour long queues. My wife and I had a great time.

Kevin was an awesome tour guide full of information about the places he took us to, nothing was an effort would recommend Kevin as a tour guide

I had an amazing time. Our guide Jeff was the best too!
