What To Expect
Head to Stanley Park with your small group and wind through the remarkable 1,000-acre (405-hectare) green space, a wonderland of 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees. Enjoy splendid vistas of the city skyline, the North Shore Mountains and Mount Baker (on a clear day), and marvel at First Nation totem poles in Brockton Point. Learn about the native people that once inhabited the area, pedal into the rain forest and past Beaver Lake, and spot local wildlife like river otters, herons, and bald eagles.
Next, wheel onto the ferry for a quick ride to Granville Island. Here, enjoy free time to stroll explore the Public Market—bursting with colorful produce and artisan goods—and grab lunch (own expense). Then head along False Creek, through Olympic Village to Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, dubbed the 'world’s top city garden' by National Geographic.
Your half-day tour concludes with a trip through ambient Gastown, the city’s historic logging outpost turned chic shopping and entertainment district. Coast past fine restaurants and boutiques and on to Coal Harbour to watch seaplanes skirt along the Burrard Inlet waterfront. Arrive back at the bike rental shop in downtown by mid-afternoon.
