Summer is just around the corner, and a trio of new Vancouver tours invites you to explore the city from all angles, speeds and senses. Read on to get prepped for an epic city adventure.
Deep Cove Kayak’s Boats, Bikes & Beers Hop a SeaBus to lush North Vancouver and take a deep inhale of the crisp mountain air – you’ve got a full day’s adventure to power through. First, a two-hour kayaking jaunt that slices across the calm waters of Indian Arm (Instagram alert!). Then, a delectable pit stop at a locally loved restaurant before a goosebumps-inducing mountain biking journey tailored to your skill level. After exploring the North Shore’s world renowned trails, you’ll sate your thirst with beer flights at Bridge Brewing while taking in the city’s shimmering coastline. Oh man, will you sleep well tonight. Maximum of six guests per adventure; $279 per person ($213.82 USD).
Scenic Rush’s Sky Pilot Experience As if taking the wheel of a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari Spider, Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R wasn’t enough, Scenic Rush has added a new spin to their exotic car experience. On this action-packed tour, you’ll cruise 120 km up the Sea to Sky corridor; ascend up the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish for a tasty lunch at the Summit Lodge, complemented by panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges and lagoon-blue Howe Sound sprawled below; traverse the Sky Pilot Suspension Bridge to Panorama Trail, where you’ll trek to a cantilevered deck overlooking jaw-dropping views of Howe Sound, Mount Garibaldi and the Stawamus Chief; and then descend to your luxury car to zip over to Squamish Airport, where Sea to Sky Air will treat you to an aerial tour of the landscape you were gaping at just minutes before. As if that wasn’t enough: back on land, you’ll buckle up tight for Scenic Rush’s Insane-Mode Tesla Experience, which launches you from 0-100km/hour in just 3.2 seconds. Once you’ve caught your breath, hop back into the driver’s seat and enjoy a leisurely cruise home – you’ve earned it. Tour costs $895 ($685.94 USD).
Vancouver Food Tour’s West Coast Foodie Adventure Tour Take your Vancouver holiday further afield with this new tour featuring a limo-chauffeured culinary jaunt to a top Vancouver brewery, winery and two award-winning restaurants, then a night at the elegant Fairmont Waterfront, including welcome champagne. Cuddle up and sleep tight, because the next morning it’s off on a scenic seaplane ride to Salt Spring Island for a walking brunch tour across this foodie and artisanal haven. Afterward, you’ll grab a floatplane to Victoria for a decadent night at the Fairmont Empress Hotel, including spa treatment and culinary tour. Your final adventure: a leisurely Helijet flight back to Vancouver Harbour. Tour price TBD.
