Tour description provided by Viator

Join your guide on a tour of three to the most beautiful parks in the Vancouver area: Whytecliff Park, Lighthouse Park, and Capilano Canyon. Whytecliff and Lighthouse Parks are situated on the rugged coastline near Horseshoe Bay and offer spectacular views of the ocean, passing boats, and surrounding mountains and islands. Capilano Canyon starts with a beautiful view of the Lions and Cleveland Dam and then into the forest along Capilano Canyon.Please Note: Minimum of two guests required per booking
After your guide picks you up, head on a scenic drive to the North Shore. You'll start the day with Capilano Canyon, where you get a great view of Capilano Reservoir, Cleveland Dam and the Lions (a pair of pointed peaks high above North Vancouver.) Afterwards, head into the forest, taking a short, scenic loop along the canyon and stopping at a fish hatchery where at certain times you are able to see salmon hop up the fish ladder.Next, drive out to Whytecliff Park on the corner of Howe Sound, where you can look over the ocean towards Squamish, Bowen Island and the various islands scattered throughout this region. Here, you'll follow your guide on an easy hike along the cliff and then walk down to the beach. If you have good footwear and it's low tide, you can climb up the rocky hill that is connected to the beach out in the ocean! You can also enjoy lunch here while you take in the view.Finish the day with a short but scenic drive along the coast and cliffs to Lighthouse Park, another beautiful park on the coast with multiple viewpoints. In addition to breathtaking views of the ocean, Lions Gate Bridge, Vancouver, and Vancouver Island, you can see the oldest Douglas Fir trees in the Vancouver area.  Some of these trees are more than 200 feet tall and 500 years old. There is also a 1914 lighthouse that is still in use. After a fantastic day, head back to your location, arriving at approximately 3:30pm. Enjoy complimentary round-trip transportation by SUV or bus from Vancouver, Richmond, or Delta. Pickup time is at approximately 9am.
