Tuesday, 11 July (8:00- 15:00)
Board coach in front of Gage Towers.
Board your private coach at the University of British Columbia, then relax as you explore some of the vibrant neighbourhoods of Vancouver. Your guide will point out the highlights as you wind your way through Vancouver to Stanley Park, a 400 hectacre natural Westcoast rainforest located in the city. There will be a photo stop at the iconic First Nations totem poles.
Next, cross the Lion’s Gate Bridge to the North Shore, where you will visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Should you wish, you can cross the 137m (450 feet) bridge high above the Capilano River. Are you brave enough to go on the Cliffwalk, an exhilarating walk along the cliff-hanging footpaths?
Your next destination will have you soaring above the city to Grouse Mountain. Ride the gondola and enjoy the beautiful scenery and sweeping views. Lunch will be served before returning to UBC.
