Travelling to Vancouver’s North Shore During COVID

Support Local

Like you, we’re passionate about exploring BC. But now is the time for us to stay local and support local businesses with just your immediate household or bubble. Let’s each do our part now, so we can explore BC again, soon. We’re all in this together.

Please refer to the Destination BC COVID-19 Update page for the most up-to-date information on travelling in BC.

What We Are Doing to Protect You During Your Visit:

  • Accommodations, attractions, restaurants and stores are all implementing provincially approved guidelines for cleaning and physical distancing to keep you safe.
  • Activity providers have created additional safety measures as well as implementing provincially approved physical distancing guidelines.
  • Due to limited space, modified group sizes, and timed visits, please call ahead of your visit to see if you need to reserve your timeslots or bring additional items such as masks ahead of your trip.


What We Ask You To Do To Keep Our Locals Safe:

  • If anyone in your group has been feeling unwell or had flu-like symptoms for the past week. Reschedule your trip.
  • Reserve your activities in advance to allow our accommodations, attractions, and activity providers to prepare for your visit.
  • Bring your own personal protective equipment such as hand sanitizer and masks.
  • Help keep first responders safe by being AdventureSmart. Plan ahead for your trip into our nature, be prepared, respect the wild, physically distance from others, and if you are looking to try a new activity – take a tour or book a lesson with an experienced professional.
  • The Quarry Rock trail is closed for the summer season. Try a new, less-known trail this summer!
  • Leave no trace. Pack out what you pack in and dispose of your waste properly, in particular your masks and gloves.
  • Be patient and kind. Our locals are Nice By Nature. They are doing everything possible to welcome you safely this summer. Check-ins and preparations may take slightly longer than usual, so account for that in your plans.
  • Support local businesses. We are eager to welcome you back and your support is more needed than ever!
