This small-group tour, carrying no more than 8 passengers, begins at Lonsdale Pier in North Vancouver, most easily accessible by the Vancouver SeaBus. The SeaBus ride offers excellent, unobstructed views of the city of Vancouver and its waterfront. After disembarking from the SeaBus, you'll be driven in an eco-friendly vehicle to enjoy a scenic drive through neighborhoods that reflect Vancouver's multicultural nature.
Depending on your particular interests, the tour includes a visit to Cates Park, home of hand totem poles and an aboriginal war canoe, as well as Deep Cove, a scenic town beautifully situated between Mount Seymour and Burrard Inlet .
Put on your walking shoes for an easy hike on the Baden Powell Trail in Mount Seymour Provincial Park. The tour also includes a stop at Lynn Canyon Park, where you can cross a 20-story suspension bridge over Lynn Creek and the valley floor. You will also have the opportunity to explore the ecology center and learn about the lush tropical British Columbia forest. The tour is low-key to give you all the time you need to appreciate the province's unique beauty.
When the tour is over, you'll be dropped off at a public market where you'll have time to browse gifts and souvenirs, before boarding the SeaBus and enjoying stunning views of the Vancouver skyline!
