North Vancouver Travel Guide
Welcome to North Vancouver!
Possessing some of Canada's most beautiful residential neighbourhoods, the city of North Vancouver is known for having an abundance of huge trees and colourful flowers which each contribute to its fresh, outdoorsy persona. Although North Vancouver is located only a 5-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, the area has a distinctively friendly, small-mountain-village feel to it, and offers abundant outdoor activities and attractions. Nearby Grouse Mountain is an excellent skiing venue, but it also features several other activities year-round, including mountain biking, hiking and paragliding. Lynn Canyon Park is renowned for having spectacular flora and fauna, while the Capilano Suspension Bridge is also a popular attraction, overlooking the Capilano River from 230 feet above ground level. In addition to its vast natural beauty, North Vancouver also offers all the conveniences and amenities of a big city, including world-class restaurant and shopping facilities. Enjoy a pleasant day at the beach at popular Ambleside Park near the Lions Gate Bridge.
Completed in 1952, the Cleveland Dam lies at the head of the Capilano River and the southern end of Capilano Lake on the North Shore of Greater Vancouver.
