About Vancouver's North Shore

The North Shore is more than just a spectacular backdrop for one of the world’s most scenic cities. It’s teeming with life, wild and urban, and the possibilities of what to do with your time here are endless.

Few cities offer visitors the chance to spend the morning skiing or boarding, and the afternoon enjoying a round of golf.

If you love water sports you've come to the right place: just head downhill from anywhere and you'll hit the ocean. The coves and islands on the coastline make for perfect paddling trips and some of the best diving in the world. All that vibrant Coast Mountain rainforest makes North and West Vancouver’s trails a mecca for all levels of hikers and mountain bikers alike.

Once you’ve explored the outdoors, it’s time to hit the shops. Shopping malls have everything you need, but don’t forget to stroll the North Shore’s community shopping districts – Deep Cove, Lonsdale, The Quay, Edgemont Village, Ambleside, Dundarave, Caulfeild and Horseshoe Bay - they have some of the best shops, galleries and eateries around, from quaint to classy. Speaking of eating, are you hungry? Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Greek, Persian, Indian... there's something to satisfy ever craving and every budget.

All that vibrant Coast Mountain rainforest makes North and West Vancouver's trails a mecca for hikers and mountain bikers alike. Grab a map from the nearby bike shop (or eavesdrop on the locals) to discover why everyone on two wheels wants to ride here.

The only thing in short supply is time to take in all that the North Shore has to offer.
