Amazing views of Vancouver and surrounds. The sky ride up was a bit cramped but quick enough where it didn't matter. Would definitely recommend trying to go up during summer as the 2 grizzly bears weren't on site (I think they're going in to their hibernation time) But overall it's worth a visit.

We took the free bus from Canada Place to get there and really enjoyed the day. The cable car ride up the mountain is great, and then we went by chairlift to the very top. The views all the way are brilliant, from the city spread out below to the tops of the Cascades in Washington State, USA! We also... More

The trip on the cable car is so much fun, try to take a place on the front of the car so you have better visibility. Once on the top, if the season is right, you'll have a chance to watch a couple of bears, unfortunately the day I visited they decided to start hibernating. We were able to see... More

There is a lodge at the top with a cafe and a restaurant. They also have the Olympic 2010 Torch on display in a glass case. The views of the surrounding Inlet and Fjords must be spectacular when its not cloudy. But I enjoyed my time. The Grouse Grind is optional. I took the Tram up and down.

We've been up the gondola many times. It's always a nice experience. If you have never been to the city and have more than a couple days, it's kind of a must. No better perspective of all of Greater Vancouver other than a Helijet Ride. But way cheaper than a Helijet ride. The Observatory restaurant is fine dining and pricey,... More

We visited Vancouver in September and had magical fine days. The free Grouse Mountain shuttle bus from Canada Place took us to the cable car. The cable car ride to the top was excellent with fantastic views over Vancouver and North Vancouver. It was great to see the grizzly bears and the lumberjack show. A ski lift to the higher... More

We visited at the end of October. Everything up the top is closed, so it was a lot of money ($40 each) to go up in the misty weather (so you don't get much of a view), see the grizzly Bears (this was a cool novelty for us) then come back down. The guide that took us in the gondola... More

We were in town for a cruise to Alaska and had one day to spend in Vancouver. We have young kids, eight and five and wanted something fun to do with them for the day. We got the free shuttle bus from Canada Place, right next to our hotel, very convenient. We took the cable car to the top which... More

We took the free bus shuttle to the car park at Grouse Mountain and then the cable car to the top. The views were spectacular. There were a lot of activities on top of the mountain, walks, ziplines, lumberjack show and the wildlife show. The eagles and hawks were amazing. The bears were playful. We had coffee and watched a... More

If you are in this fantastic city this is an absolute must. Get the shuttle down by the harbour and ride up to this wonderful place. On the way you will get a good commentary from the driver regarding the trip. When you get there the gondola ride is breathtaking, make sure you have your camera ready. When you reach... More
