How to Get Off the Beaten Path in Vancouver

How to Get Off the Beaten Path in Vancouver

With millions of visitors touching down every year, certain corners of Vancouver can feel crowded. Luckily, there’s a whole lot of open space within easy reach of downtown, as well as under-explored spots where you can live like a local. Here’s how to get off the beaten path in Vancouver.  

Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge

While the Capilano Suspension Bridge is one of the Vancouver’s most popular attractions, North Vancouver’s lesser-known Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge draws fewer crowds. Despite being shorter in length than Capilano, the rushing river below makes this swaying bridge every bit as exhilarating to cross. 

Lonsdale Quay Market

If you’re looking for a quiet alternative to Granville Island Public Market, head for North Vancouver’s Lonsdale Quay Market, where vendors sell everything from fresh fish to trinkets. Eat outside while soaking up the views of the skyline across the harbor. 

Stanley Park

Stanley Park is no secret, with most travelers making a point to stroll along the seawall, see the totem poles, and ride the miniature train. But, despite its popularity, there are still parts of the park that remain quiet and crowd-free. Lost Lagoon, a freshwater lagoon in the south of the park, is tranquil even in high season. 

Bowen Island

Just a 20-minute ferry ride from Vancouver, Bowen Island is a forested oasis with hiking trails and ample kayaking opportunities. Come for your fix of fresh air and solitude. 

Haro Strait

Escape the bustle of the city by venturing into the Haro Strait, a channel of water between British Columbia’s Gulf Islands and Washington state’s San Juan Islands. Take a boat cruise to increase your chances of spotting sea life, which ranges from seals and sea lions to orcas.
