Vancouver’s North Shore, Naturally

Spring Break From the Ordinary

With so many exciting options to expend energy and re-charge it again, the North Shore makes for the perfect family Spring vacation, no matter what your crew is into! As the green pokes through on our mountains, there’s even more wilderness to explore on Vancouver’s North Shore. A variety of trails for all skill levels ensure the whole family can enjoy a day in the woods. Or you could fly: through the air on Grouse Mountain’s Zipline adventure, or on two wheels down some of the best and varied mountain biking in the world. For those who prefer chill over thrills, genre-busting art galleries and historic museums make for a captivating “indoor day.”


Take It Outside

On Vancouver’s North Shore, longer days mean more time to spend outdoors, chasing adventure around every corner. Cycling is one of the best ways to see the North Shore, whether that’s on a casual ride along the Spirit Trail through the city or a little more elevated along the 10K Seymour Valley Trailway. Go a little deeper exploring world-class canyons and waterfalls with West Coast Canyoning Adventures and experience West Coast beauty from a different perspective. Out on the water, there’s plenty of action, whether that’s kayaking into the sparkling tranquility of Indian Arm out of Deep Cove, braving the rapids of the Capilano and Seymour rivers, or stand-up paddling on the ocean off Ambleside Beach. If slow and steady is more your speed, picturesque golf, abundant fishing, and serene birdwatching all welcome the warmer weather.


Go Cosmopolitan

You don’t have to head out into the wilderness to find a wild time on Vancouver’s North Shore. You’ll find all the excitement of the big city coloured with small town charm in our world-class restaurants, cafes and breweries, and in unique shops and galleries. Lower Lonsdale’s Brewery District is one-stop bar hopping, with seven breweries plus a winery, a cidery, and a distillery, all within walking distance of one another. Nearby is the iconic Lonsdale Quay Market and Food Hall, full of unique treasures from local artisans and makers, plus food vendors to satisfy any and all appetites. Take to the streets to explore public art and more fascinating culture inspired by the region, with the North Shore Culture Compass as your guide.
