Vancouver's prime location near the Pacific Ocean and Coast Mountains makes it easy to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.

Well-marked trails, and rental bikes if needed, make cycling around the city's parks a pleasure. The Stanley Park seawall, the shores of picturesque English Bay to False Creek, and the lush paths of Pacific Spirit Regional Park are just a few of the many places that welcome cyclists. Looking for something a bit rockier or rootier? Head to the renowned North Shore mountain bike trails.

Choose from a multitude of walking routes and hiking trails in a wide range of settings with always-remarkable views. Vancouver's golf courses are world-class in nature and world-famous for the scenery, and campsites just outside of the city can be tucked among the trees, high up the alpine, or near coastal waters.
