Complement your Conference experience with Vancouver sightseeing options
(suggestions courtesy of Destination Vancouver)

Vancouver Seawall

Stroll the Seawall

Stretching 22 kilometres from Coal Harbour to Kitsilano Beach – wrapping around Stanley Park along the way – the seawall that borders Vancouver’s coastline is the most popular recreational spot in the city. The perfect fresh-air activity, you can walk or rent a bike to tour a portion of the route starting right at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

 

Granville Island

Explore Granville Island

A charming public market overflowing with fresh produce, breads and a bounty of other goods is reason enough to visit Granville Island Public Market, not to mention exploring the narrow lanes of the island to check out its unique shops and photo-worthy views of downtown across False Creek.

Grouse Mountain

Have a Peak Experience

Grouse Mountain’s Skyride delivers riders to remarkable views and a huge range of on-mountain experiences, including hiking, ziplining and more.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

Traverse the Treetops

Adventurers can make their way across the swaying Capilano Suspension Bridge that stretches 137 metres across the canyon and the Capilano River 70 metres below, plus explore the Cliffwalk feature, a series of suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face above Capilano River.

Grouse Mountain

Take Flight

One of the best ways to see coastal Vancouver’s most breathtaking sights is on a scenic flightseeing adventure by floatplane with Harbour Air, Westcoast Air, Seair Seaplanes, Helijet or Whistler Air. Alternatively, Vancouver’s newest big attraction, FlyOver Canada, offers a coast-to-coast virtual aerial tour and an immersive experience for all five senses!

Harbour Cruises

Set Sail

A tour aboard Harbour Cruises, Vancouver’s leading boat sightseeing company, offers unparalleled views of Vancouver; it’s a delightful way to experience the city – by day or night.

Golf Courses

Keep Your Eye on the Ball

From views of the city to grand vistas of Georgia Strait and the Coast Mountains, nearly all of Vancouver’s dozens of top-notch golf courses are framed by majestic scenery. 

Indigenous-Led Nature Walk in Stanley Park

Engage in a unique nature trail excursion through Vancouver’s Stanley Park, led by local Indigenous knowledge experts. A valuable precursor to the Conference program, you will learn about the rich history, plant life, ecosystems and cultural significance of this renowned park, and better understand sustainable land use practices from an Indigenous perspective. Participants will deepen their appreciation of the land’s importance through this immersive experience, fostering a deeper connection to nature and Indigenous culture.

 

Don’t miss this chance to explore Stanley Park through a new lens and (re)discover its beauty and wisdom alongside fellow Conference attendees.
