  • We decided to check out Norvan Falls for the first time on Canada's 150th birthday! The hike itself is not steep or too bumpy but it is a long walk. It's 14km return but we added a few kms because we ...  more »

  • It isn't the nicest waterfall in the area but it's a fun easy (but somewhat long) hike to do. Great on a hot day as you are in tree cover for most of it! Great place to stop by and cool off if you're heading to Hanes Valley or Coliseum Mountain.
  • This lovely waterfall makes the 5 hour walk all worth it. Also an ideal place for a picnic.
  • An uncrowded, pet friendly local gem through temperate rainforest that ends at the picturesque, Norvan Falls. The trail is well marked and the grades are moderate. Bring proper footwear as there are lots of opportunities to roll an ankle. The return distance from the parking lot to the falls is about 16 km. Allow about four hours which will give you lots of time at the falls. *Update - The road to the parking has been closed. You can access via Lower Seymour Conservation, Rice Lake Gate and take the Lynn Headwaters Connector to the main trail
  • Easy but long trail , 14 km round trip but sometimes theres no parking in the parking lot and you have to park down the street adding to your hike time. Wear proper footwear, snow on some parts of the trail
  • The destination was cool but not really worth the 3 hour hike there. The hike isn't a very interesting one but the trails are very well kept.

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.
