Trophy fishing in Coquitlam

The city of Coquitlam is surrounded by parks and trails, which means there’s always an opportunity to explore the great outdoors. The Fraser River acts as a southern boundary and serves up some of the best salmon, trout, and sturgeon fishing in BC.

Coquitlam is one of Canada’s most hyped mountain biking destinations, with high octane trails winding their way down Burke and Eagle mountains. For an urban scene head to Austin Heights, a trendy neighborhood dotted with cafés and boutiques.

Minnekhada Park is another popular nature reserve, with miles of hiking trails to explore. Coveted as one of the most scenic spots in the lower mainland, Deep Cove is a stunning place for a paddle. Most visitors fall head over heels for the waterfront community, so why not stay local with Coquitlam vacation rentals close to Deep Cove? The views are even better at elevation, with the family-friendly Quarry Rock hike unlocking million dollar views over the bay.

Fairs, festivals, and summer vibes in Coquitlam

Coquitlam is at its best in the summer, when the city throws a lively calendar of events. From outdoor concerts and movies under the starts to arts festivals and food truck fairs, there’s always something going on. Late spring and early fall can treat Vancouverites to lashings of sunshine, though winters can be rather rainy. Of course, if you’re planning on hitting the slopes there’s no better time to visit than mid-winter. As well as local mountains like Cypress and Grouse, Coquitlam vacation rentals offer access to the legendary Whistler Blackcomb Resort.

Your gateway to beautiful BC

While its just half an hour east of downtown Vancouver, Coquitlam feels worlds away from the city. Many covet Coquitlam for its proximity for nature, with parks, rivers, and mountains all within easy reach. As well as local sites like Como Lake and Mundy Park, Coquitlam is also a jumping-off point to iconic provincial parks like Golden Ears and Garibaldi. If you’re hitting the trails, it’s important to remember that Coquitlam is still bona fide bear country, so you’ll need to carry bear spray and keep dogs leashed.
