Excursion Details

With your personal Urban & Eco-Guide, you will be picked up at a single Metro Vancouver location and then discover one of the world’s most primitive ecosystems, the Pacific Temperate Rainforest. You’ll travel across the Burrard Inlet to the mountainous North Shore rainforest. You’ll explore the BC’s lower mainland’s ‘virgin uncut-old growth’ forest with arguably 1000 to 1300-year-old trees, and an incredible opportunity to discover one of the world’s most primitive ecosystems and learn how all of its inhabitants contribute to its delicate balance. And what a beautiful environment in which to view them; waves crash against granite cliffs as the ocean breeze whistles through the boughs above. Incredible vista of cityscape and Burrard Inlet and Bowen Island.

Explore giant Douglas Firs, and Western Red Cedars. Escorted by your eco-guide, this unique 60 minutes then explores the vistas of one of Canada’s most picturesque lighthouses and Natural Historic Sites. Orca whales have even been spotted off the point! From here you’ll enjoy a guided tour along the coastal road for 25 minutes to the Capilano River Canyon, where in May & June and late August to November you can often view different species of salmon running the river to spawn, and you’ll hear the story of the Pacific Salmon. Your guide will then escort you up the Capilano River Canyon, walking among the giant Cedars and towering Douglas Firs, reaching as high as 85 meters (270’). An awe inspiring walk up the canyon and you will see the awesomeness of the Cleveland Dam, supplying 1/3 of Vancouver’s water and some of the cleanest drinking water in the world, and we you will even take a quick trip up the top of the Dam to see all of its awesomeness. Please note: The best salmon viewing times are September to November.
