COVE™ City Guide: Vancouver

english bay aerial view

Vancouver has long captured the imagination of some of Canada’s great writers and artists, offering beautiful natural scenery along the pacific ocean. Here are some of our favourite things to do in Vancouver.


Mystery Lake, North Vancouver

Located in Mount Seymour Provincial Park, Mystery Lake is a scenic lake perfect for swimming on hot summer days. The hike is relatively easy due to its short distance, the trail does ascend 150 meters and over tree roots and loose rocks. Picnic here.

Lighthouse Park, West Vancouver

This is one of Greater Vancouver’s most beautiful parks located along the shores of West Vancouver. Hikes in Lighthouse Park promise Ancient Douglas Fir trees and breathtaking views of the water. The trails here are relativity easy with only a few having a short hill to ascend or descend. Explore the lighthouse too.

Capilano-Pacific Trail, Capilano Canyon

The Capilano Pacific Trail follows the Capilano River, bordering North and West Vancouver, from the sea up to Cleveland Dam. The route is 7.5km (roughly 2 hours) each way and follows a variety of terrain, including beaches, rocky shores, steep canyon cliffs, and dense west coast rain forest. Get ready for a full-day adventure.

Quarry Rock, North Vancouver

On the shores of Deep Cove in North Vancouver sits a large rocky outcrop known as Quarry Rock. This hike offers thick woods of Douglas Fir and Hemlock trees, small creeks from mountain runoff, and the smell of fresh forest air. End at Indian Arm, a fjord that will make you feel like you’re in Norway.


Escape to Salt Spring Island. A ferry ride away from the bustle of downtown Vancouver, Salt Spring Island is home to many artists. Think orchards, forests, adorable cabins and Scandinavian-inspired saunas – Salt Spring Islanders even have their own local currency, the Salt Spring Dollar. This is the perfect island for wandering and making your own fun.

Grouse Mountain

Make your way up to Grouse Mountain for one of the best views of Vancouver. In the winter, take the trolley up the mountain to experience the massive mountaintop ice rink and a sliding zone for winter sledding. In the summer, hike the 2,830 step Grouse Grind, a 2.9-kilometre trail up the face of Grouse Mountain, commonly referred to as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster.”


Tacofino Oasis

What started as a Tofino taco truck has grown to become Tacofino Oasis, a West-Coast-inspired Mexican haven made fresh with quality ingredients. The 1940s and 50s décor will make you feel like you’re eating in a mid-century Mexican resort town.

The Juice Truck

The Juice Truck is Vancouver’s cold-pressed juice go-to. The juicers launched on four wheels first and then expanded into a mini empire severing up delicious plant-based snacks, meals, sundries – and juice, of course!

Revolver Coffee Inc.

One of the most famous coffee shops in Vancouver, Revolver Coffee Inc. is popular for a reason. With an extensive bean selection, you can choose a dozen different ways to have your coffee brewed and crafted. This quaint, very “Gastown”, spot is a must for coffee-drinkers.


  • Rent a kayak Deep Cove in North Vancouver. Search for baby seals while you discover remote beaches only accessible by boat.
  • Watch the sunset at the Seawall while you stroll or bike through Stanley Park. Like Vancouver artist Emily Carr said, “It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw.”
  • Sunbathe nude at Wreck Beach, get dressed and wander through the Nitobe Memorial Gardens and Botanical Gardens just down the street.

This list is just the start, we hope you explore all Vancouver has to offer and discover more. At COVE™ our goal is to Make Each Experience a Discovery ™.
