Vancouver Top Outdoor Experiences

Walk or bike the Stanely Park Seawall: The 9-km (5½-mile) paved path around Stanley Park is a civilized entrée into the coastal habitat where forest meets sea. The entire 22-km (13½-mile) Seawall circles the city and is great for biking.

Hike the Grouse Grind: This intense 1½-hour climb up Grouse Mountain is a local rite of passage. The city and ocean views from the top are stunning. You can take the gondola back down, or take it both up and down and do your hiking along the trails up top such as to Goat Mountain.

White-water kayak the Capilano River: It's a serious tumble along canyons, through rain forest, and over rocks and rapids.

Play volleyball at Kits Beach: Vancouverites play a mean game of beach volleyball. Listen for the shouts of "good kill" on weekends from late spring to fall.

Kayak Indian Arm: Barely 30 minutes from Downtown, the North Shore's fjordic landscape is stunning and best appreciated under paddle power.
