DAY 4 – Vancouver City Highlights + Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.

This tour of Vancouver's culturally diverse city begins with a tour of prominent downtown attractions such as Canada Place and Robson Street. On the way to Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre natural paradise bordered by the Pacific Ocean, pass through historic and modern architectural masterpieces, including the 2010 Olympic Cauldron. Continue to the breathtaking scenery of the English Bay beach region, followed by a visit to the gorgeous Queen Elizabeth Park, after a stop at the Rose Garden. It is Vancouver's highest point, at 152 meters above sea level, and offers amazing views of the park, city, and mountains on the North Shore.

Continuing your adventure, you will arrive in Chinatown, which is one of the world's largest. A historical classification preserves the distinctive character of buildings, including murals and window art telling the story of early Chinese pioneers. Then it's on to Gastown, where cobblestone lanes are lined with restaurants serving up the best of modern cuisine, art galleries, and fashionable boutiques, all set against vintage lampposts and the renowned Gastown Steam Clock.

Capilano bridge is 27 acres of nature and adventure tucked away in North Vancouver, just 30-minutes from downtown Vancouver.  One of the most popular destinations for both Vancouverites and visitors, the park offers three different experiences with a single admission ticket – the Suspension Bridge, Treetops, and the Cliff Walk.

The main attraction of this park set in rainforest landscape, is the 450 feet (137 meters) long bridge suspended 230 feet (70 meters) above the Capilano River. Millions of daring visitors have taken a walk across this suspension bridge since its opening in 1889.

The Treetops Adventure consists of a series of suspension bridges attached to 30-ton, 250-year-old Douglas-firs.  Viewing platforms are attached to a special tree collar system that uses no nails or bolts that would harm the trees and allows visitors to walk freely between the viewing platforms.  The bridges go as high as 110 feet above the forest floor and offer spectacular views.

Reaching out over the misty expanse of evergreen foliage, the Cliff Walk follows the granite walls of the Capilano River.  A labyrinth-like series of narrow cantilevered bridges, stairs, and platforms through rainforest vegetation, the Cliff Walk dares visitors to tread out over the open canyon below to get a birds-eye view of the canyon and the river running below. Of course, the Cliff Walk is not meant for the weak-hearted.

Overnight in Vancouver, BC
