Sightseeing
Great walking / hiking trails in the canyon. About a 10 min drive from my place in North Van. The locals “free” version of Capilano Suspension Bridge. Swimming pools if you’re up for a chilly dip.

Rent kayaks or paddle boards in Deep Cove! Indian arm is protected so it’s quite calm on the water out here.

A Vancouver badge of honour. Not for the faint of heart. Seriously it’s a hard hike so wear proper shoes and get ready to sweat. Enjoy well deserved beer and nachos at the top before taking the gondola back down. Local tip. Search for the BCMC trail instead to avoid some of the crowds. Amazing views up at the top of grouse. You can also go see the grizzly bears in their sanctuary.

Not saying the walkway is a must see but take the sea bus for a ride for easy access between downtown and north van! It’s part of our public transit system and you get amazing views out on the water.

Evenings on the Shore
Some ideas for fun nights out in North Van.
Friday nights in the summer. Great spot for local music, artisans and food trucks. Can get pretty busy so it’s a great people watching spot as well. Go early and snag a spot on the Tap and Barrel patio right beside the market for a drink before or during.

If you have a car or bike, hit up this awesome brewery and grab a bite at the same time. Live music some nights. Popular spot for the Arcteryx head office, north shore mountain bikers, and Hive bouldering gym climbers. You’ll fit right in wearing a fleece and toque.
