Not just for skiing and soaking up the views, Grouse Mountain serves as a major year-round playground for both tourists and locals. Known as the "Peak of Vancouver," this mountaintop recreational area offers plenty of chances to hike, zipline, paraglide, and attend or take part in lumberjack events. Access the summit via a scenic chairlift ride or by hiking up a network of rustic trails. Other year-round attractions include a mountaintop wildlife refuge and theater. For a different perspective, consider joining a helicopter sightseeing tour. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, North Vancouver holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Grouse Mountain and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Not too far from Vancouver is this gem of place. Fantastic views of Vancouver and at the top hill, 360 views. Lumberjack show is quite interesting so are the two grizzlies. 
  • Of all the places we visited in Canada, Grouse Mountain was the best value by far. Great gondola ride, the Grizzlies, the bird show, the loggers show, and, and I say it again, and they had "Beaver Tai...  read more »
  • So enjoyable that getting stung by a wasp near the top seemed part of having an authentic experience. Very well run bird show and even when the turkey vulture flew off it was an opportunity to showcase its soaring ability. Great views from the wind turbine (or anywhere on the mountain). Do see the lumberjack show, it's not about showing three dozen different ways to chop wood. I can't speak to the dining experience up top, perhaps pack a couple of extra candy bars instead and take the bus from Canada Place.
  • We visited Grouse mountain in July of 2016. We took the skyride and it was an amazing experience and went all the way to the peak. The view is breathtaking. We actually saw a grouse with its chicks. It was awesome.
  • I was going to give this place less stars because it is the most tourist trapp-ey tourist trap I think I went to during my trip to Vancouver. Then our Paragliding appointment came and after that we couldn't stop smiling. It was amazing. Go paragliding! DO IT! Best way to see the city and get down from the mountain. You will not regret it!
  • The hardest hike that I have ever taken. For family with children, be it any age, this hike can take a good 2 to 3 hours. However, it is recommended that you be in good shape to make the climb, as even the most fit climber can sweat easily. I would definitely try the Grouse Grind again.
  • This is a place that must be visited regardless the season. Besides skiing / snowshoeing in winter, it's an awesome place in summer as well. Several shows, the lumberjack is amazing. The grizzly bears can't be missed! I take all visitors there and everyone loves it! Amazing views of beautiful Vancouver!
