Vancouver’s City and Nature Perspectives
A combination of beautiful urban scenery, historical interpretation and a gentle walk through Vancouver’s protected rainforest is the ideal choice for lovers of the great outdoors.
This tour is the perfect combination for those who want to explore both the bustling city and its natural beauty, with plenty of opportunities for spectacular photo shots. First, explore the metropolis of Vancouver from the Business district to trendy Yaletown. Then you’ll glimpse into the city’s mixed native, European and Asian cultures in the T&T Asian Market, legendary Chinatown and historic Gastown. Discover the thriving residential area of Yale Town and the West End as you head into Stanley Park to see the famous West Coast Totem Poles. We take you over the Lions Gate Bridge to the North Shore, for a visit to the tranquil setting of the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Then you’ll continue to the Capilano Salmon Hatchery, where you will learn and see the life cycle of the Pacific Salmon. The grand finale will be a walk through the Coastal Rainforest of the Capilano Canyon where you will indulge your desire for knowledge, and discover lichen, moss, ferns, and flowering plants, which grow under the mantle of Douglas Fir, Cedar and Hemlock trees. A stop will be made during this excursion for a
“Al Fresco” Gourmet Picnic lunch. Comfortable shoes and layered clothing are recommended as the tour will go rain or shine.
As guests are being captivated by their guide, discovering the sights and sounds of Vancouver, other Rockwood staff members are setting up, so that when guests complete their tour they will arrive to find a splendid picnic lunch awaiting them on bright and beautiful French china, with stemware and beverages, and crisp linen to catch the crumbs.
