Things to do in Vancouver in the summer!

Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge

Rising 1,250 metres (4,100 feet) above Vancouver and just 15 minutes from the city’s downtown core, is the vast alpine playground of Grouse Mountain. Take a gondola to the mountain peak, learn about the majestic Grizzly at The Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, zip-line over the natural beauty of the Douglas Firs, and get a full view of Vancouver, the harbour and more from The Eye of the Wind.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

A 15-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, the iconic Capilano Suspension Bridge is a Vancouver landmark. Walk the 450 foot length of the bridge, suspended over 200 feet above the Capilano River. If that seems a little too much for you, there’s also an incredible system of smaller suspension bridges only 100 feet above the ground amidst the giant Douglas Firs.
