Extend your visit to the North Shore with extra time at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and Grouse Mountain plus an additional stop at the Capilano Salmon Hatchery. Find your inner kid again: learn about the lifecycle of the Pacific Salmon, conquer Vancouver’s oldest suspension bridge and don’t forget to visit the resident Grizzly Bears, Grinder and Coola, at Grouse Mountain. Tell them we said hi!
The attractions and amenities of downtown Vancouver are sure to DELIGHT you. Explore Stanley Park, Granville Island and the Vancouver Lookout, before crossing over the Lions Gate Bridge to Vancouver’s North Shore. Get lost (no, not literally) in the natural beauty and splendour of the local Capilano Salmon Hatchery and Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.
The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is home to three exciting attractions! The first and most notable (which also happens to be Vancouver’s oldest attraction) is the suspension bridge itself spanning 140 metres across and 70 metres above the Capilano River below. After crossing the bridge, experience Treetop Adventures, a series of eight smaller bridges and platforms amongst the 250-year-old Douglas Fir trees. The park’s newest addition is the Cliffwalk, a suspended walkway following the side of a granite cliff 90 metres above the Capilano River.
Take the Skyride Gondola to the Peak of Vancouver and appreciate the true beauty of downtown Vancouver and beyond. Enjoy light hiking trails, wildlife exhibits, and Theatre in the Sky. Be sure to visit the resident Grizzly Bears, Grinder and Coola, at the Habitat for Endangered Wildlife. Enjoy relaxing on the patio as you watch hikers push themselves to the limits while completing the Grouse Grind.
Set alongside the Capilano River surrounded by rainforest, the Capilano Salmon Hatchery is a not-for-profit dedicated to the conservation of the Pacific salmon population. Take in the rainforest air, learn about the life cycle of these incredible species and see first-hand the positive ecological efforts produced by the hatchery while you explore this picturesque west coast setting.
