Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web
Vancouver Lookout offers panoramic views of the lively downtown, a lush park, and the harbor. The famous astronaut Neil Armstrong opened the lookout in 1977 (a cement block with his footprint stood on the viewing deck until renovations, when it disappeared). Hop on a glass elevator that will take you 168 m (553 ft) above street level. You can opt for a self-guided tour, or ask the friendly staff to point out some of the city's attractions to you. If you're hungry, consider dining at the revolving restaurant on the top. Using our international travel planner, Vancouver attractions like Vancouver Lookout can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Great views. The day ticket gives you all day access so you can get back night time (unfortunately I did not have time to get back late at night). Spectacular views and the windows positioned at about 45degrees almost gives no reflections in camera.
  • The view is just amazing, going up there gives u a great feeling. It's something u have to do if u r a tourist or living here u have to check it out.
  • This provided a great view of Vancouver. The only thing that would have made it better is if the windows were clean. The windows looked like they have not been washed in several months.
  • The Vancouver Lookout will provide you with exceptional views of downtown, North Vancouver, Burnaby and even a view of Mount Baker on a clear day! The staff was friendly and the information provided around the lookout was very interesting. Free wi-fi is a great bonus, thank you :)
  • The ticket allows you to go up as many times as you want on the day. The lookout is a great spot for photographing railtown from above. There are staff explaining the buildings/districts to tourists.
