Need To Know
Our Peak & Canyon Tour begins in the coastal rainforest of the Capilano Canyon. Then venture to the peak of a local mountain all on Vancouver’s North Shore. As the best option to immerse yourself in the extraordinary nature surrounding the city, your adventure includes admission to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and Grouse Mountain Resort.
At Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, cross the famous suspension bridge spanning a heart-pounding 137 metres (450 feet) across and 73 metres (230 feet) above Capilano River. Make sure to allow time to explore the Treetops Adventure and CliffWalk, as well as the extensive grounds of the park.
Rising 1,250 metres (4,100 feet) above Vancouver, Grouse Mountain offers an incredible chance to observe the city below and partake in an array of activities. Meet the resident Grizzly bears, Grinder and Coola, have lunch at one of the many dining options, and catch one of the nature-based films playing at Theatre in the Sky.

Next, wander through the 250-year-old canopies with the Treetop Adventures platforms.
