  • My buddy and I went to Lynn Canyon for a hike. My buddy was showing me around my first time in NORTH Vancouver. Unbelievable how much wilderness beauty can be in the heart of a city. Must see if visit...  more »

  • Lynn Canyon Park. One of the great reasons why B.C. is the best on earth! Even on the hottest day, it's got a ton of space and shade for you and your family to sit and enjoy nature. Complete with a ton of picnic tables and little shelters to enjoy food and drinks. I'm not too keen on hiking around, but it's relatively simply to walk around and enjoy the rushing river blast underneath the bridge. Even on the busiest day, it's not too crowded just because it's so damn big! Park rangers are also available on hand all over in case you have any questions or need help. And it's free free free!! Highly recommend :)
  • Beautiful canyon with a great suspension bridge that leads to a wonderful slightly challenging hiking trail. The waterfall is really fun to observe and the trails surrounded by large trees. One of the best places in North Vancouver to visit.
  • Absolutely worth visiting. It's a free alternative to Capilano Bridge and in my opinion just as nice and not too busy. I'll definitely come back.
  • Magical experience. Unlimited trails, hiking and exploring. Very scenic, and easy to access... challenging terrains. Use local GPS to see even more trails that are very remote with low traffic. Cool places to stop and just hang out, and good food / coffee at the cafe.
  • So many different trails to discover and there is a free suspension bridge! The trails are well maintained and there are many spots to go for a swim on a hot day. There's even a natural rock slide! The only downfall is it's too busy on the weekends!

Where to stay in North Vancouver

Often overshadowed by its larger and more famous southern neighbor, North Vancouver offers relatively little by way of accommodations. Your best bet is to look towards the shore, along Esplanade Avenue and the streets directly behind, where you'll find a few hotels offering views over the pier. Stay west of the center, along Capilano Road, for easy access to the Capilano River and surrounding parks. You can also consider staying in Vancouver proper and take public transport across the harbor.
