Vancouver’s North Shore is more than just the majestic mountain backdrop for one of the world’s most scenic cities. It’s a year-round, more-than-mountains, destination where the city and wild nature collide.
This is the place where landscapes, history, culture, and people connect in a region of varied experiences. From our snow-capped mountaintops to our towering old-growth forests to the turquoise waters of our shoreline.
Not an hour down the highway, but mere minutes to Downtown Vancouver. We’re the wilderness on the city’s doorstep. Here you move from cosmopolitan neighbourhoods to wild adventure and back in an afternoon. City to gritty in minutes. We’re a world-class mountain biking and hiking mecca but with neighbourhoods with extraordinary dining and shopping just moments away. Take your bike at the end of the day from rooty trails in our wild parks to a frosty craft beer in the turn of a wheel.
Forest bathe and fill your cup. We’re home to world-class skiing and boarding, snowshoeing, hiking, and kayaking, and some of the region’s most popular attractions. We’re the birthplace of freeriding, known internationally as a mountain biking mecca. Our outside is ingrained in how we live, work, and play. We welcome the chill-seekers and the thrill-seekers. Come play with us.
Vancouver’s North Shore is made up of distinctive and characterful neighbourhoods. Each unique but all full of small-town spirit and North Shore pride. We love the outdoors, but we also love shopping, art, dining, and craft beer. You’ll find it all in our neighbourhoods each with their own vibe, shops, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and bars. We’re nice by nature. Our people love where they live, know how to have fun, and want to show you how to live like a local.
