Guided Sunset Hiking Tour (transportation, guide & snacks included)
Outside Vancouver, the North Shore Mountains offer the chance to escape into the British Columbian wilderness—but it can be easy to get lost exploring the hiking trails independently. On this tour, enjoy round-trip transport from downtown Vancouver by air-conditioned vehicle and delve into the Canadian wilderness with your guide. Admire uninterrupted views over the surrounding peaks and valleys.
