From our beautiful beaches to our snow-capped mountains, Vancouver is an outdoor paradise.
The outdoor lifestyle is so important to Vancouver culture and Vancouverites, as well as a main attraction for travelers and visitors. There are few places in the world that offer such a wide variety of outdoor activities: in Vancouver, you can play at the beach, golf and hit the slopes all in the same day!
Breathe the fresh air. Listen to the wind in the trees. Sleep under the stars. Whether looking for a city experience, rustic getaway or a home-away-from-home, the camper will find it all right here in Greater Vancouver.
Vancouver is an extremely bike-friendly city. Not only do separated lanes in downtown Vancouver make it easy for residents to commute via bike, there are lots of flat, easy, scenic routes for cycling throughout the city.
Let's face it: mountain biking is in Vancouver's blood. Kids grow up in the sport because it's a legitimate extracurricular school activity. The city breeds world champs and medal-winning Olympians who probably eat dirt for breakfast.
There are three great ski resorts on Vancouver’s North Shore – all about a 30-minute drive from downtown. All offer great downhill skiing, as well as snowshoeing and other winter activities. Further up the coast is, of course, Whistler Blackcomb – one of the world’s premier skiing destinations.
For water sports enthusiasts of all kinds, Vancouver has plenty of to offer. Situated on the shores of Burrard Inlet, English Bay, and the Georgia Strait, the city boasts an impressive amount of coastline. The surrounding region has pristine lakes, beautiful inlets and coves, and mighty rivers, making Vancouver a paradise for anyone who loves getting out on the water.
