Lakeside days and winter sports in North Vancouver

Summers in North Vancouver are all about laid-back lakeside living. Find a secluded sandy bay and soak up some rays, enjoy an invigorating dip in crystal-clear waters, or explore the region at your own pace by kayak or paddleboard. The North Shore is also much-loved by hikers and mountain bikers, with an abundance of pristine trails to suit all ages and fitness levels. In winter, the nearby mountains and provincial parks offer ideal conditions for downhill and cross-country skiing. Or, you might prefer the thrill of a retail fix, picking up designer fashion, quirky homeware, and hand-crafted jewelry at Lonsdale Quay Market.

Awe-inspiring vistas across North Vancouver

For jaw-dropping panoramic views of the North Shore and beyond, simply hop aboard the Grouse Mountain Skyride. This aerial tramway will take you on an unforgettable journey over lush mountainside forests, affording you the opportunity to gaze at city skylines, majestic mountains, and distant islands. Less than 10 minutes by car from downtown North Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge is another must-visit attraction. Constructed in 1889, this swaying bridge is suspended a vertigo-inducing 70 meters above the winding Capilano River, in the middle of a lush temperate rainforest.

Summer sun and winter snow in North Vancouver

The high summer season of June to August is the most popular time to visit North Vancouver. Days are generally long, dry, sunny, and pleasantly warm. By contrast, the first snowfall transforms the region into a winter sports hotspot. North Vancouver vacation rentals are in high demand during major summer and winter holidays, so start planning your trip early if possible. Spring flowers begin to bloom in March, while October is the best time to enjoy nature’s most spectacular show, the changing colors of the fall leaves.

Fragrant forests and marine mammals in North Vancouver

Within minutes of leaving the comfort of your North Vancouver vacation rental, you can find yourself at one with nature.

For an unforgettable family day trip, head out on a boat in search of mesmerizing local marine life. On any given expedition, you might catch sight of Pacific white-sided dolphins, giant Steller sea lions, or majestic whales.
