Grouse Mountain, North Vancouver

4.3
#1 of 7 in Nature in North Vancouver
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. To visit Grouse Mountain and other attractions in North Vancouver, use our North Vancouver online holiday planner .

  • Great family fun! It is a bit expensive, but worth the experience. Make sure to catch the lumber jack show, it is hysterical. They also have an awesome bird show with hawks, eagles and owls. The show was entertaining and educational, plus the hawks fly super close to you. My daughter and I loved it! They have a bear habitat with two huge bears that are really impressive and you can also go up into the eye of the wind or do some zip-lining. The food is actually quite good but expensive, but the best food they have up there is the Beaver Tails! Really fun and easy to get to. Strongly recommend.
  • Very beautiful and breathtaking place. A must place to visit in Vancouver. Lots of things to do there, zip line, lift chair, awesome views everywhere, grizzly bears. Awesome birds show and don't miss the Slumber Jack show also. Some of the activities are included in the ticket. The zip lines, helicopter tour and some others are extra. I really recommend to use sunblock if you are going during the summer and also bring bottle waters.
  • Very beautiful at the top. Seeing the bear up close in a modified habitat is a great part of the attraction. There are shows which we don't all see but I have the sense that they are well incorporated with the place. I would have spent a good amount of time here. The lift experience is awesome. There are things to do from the gondola level and the lift level. An exhilarating view of Vancouver from the top. The backdrop of the mountain ridges gives you a wow feeling. Plan your itinerary as it gets very busy in the summer. The gondola ride is fast and can accommodate a lot of people. Each lift to the peak can only accommodate 4 people but has decent turn around. Enjoy nature and the views here.
  • Excellent place to do some hiking and see the sights. Incredible that this is available so close to a major urban area. I didn't get the ultimate view from the top because of clouds but it made the walk around the grounds at the top more interesting and I saw Vancouver from the gondola as we went down. I did the grouse grind hike. It was a good workout. Just take short/small steps and keep walking and you'll make it to the top. Water filling station is hidden by the condiments station of the cafe at the top. Bring some $$ and reward yourself for a job well done with a snack at the cafe. If you do the grind 5 times in one day, like the gentleman in the gondola, you can eat whatever the hell you want.
  • Grouse Montain é simplemesmente fantástico e deve ser visitato tanto no inverno como no verão de Vancouver. No inverno, logico, você irá se deparar com as montanhas cobertas de neves e o clima frio e romântico te convida a usufruir do restaurante e tomar uma taça de vinho. No verão, aquela imagem da montanha coberta de neve simplemente desaparece tornando o lugar uma excelente opção para caminhar (fazer trilhas) pelas montanhas. Não necessariamente você precisa ir para esquiar. Pode apenas subir, caminhar pelo local e contemplar a fantástica vista da cidade. Grouse Mountain is fantastic and should be visiting both in winter and Vancouver´s summer. In winter, of course, you will come across the snowy mountains and the cold atmosphere and romantic climate invite you to enjoy the restaurant with a delicious glass of wine. In the summer, that image of the snow-covered mountain simply disappears making the place an excellent option for hiking in the mountains. You do not necessarily need to go skiing. You can just walk up, walk around and admire the fantastic view of the city.
