The Pier | North Vancouver

Spring has hit, cherry blossoms are in bloom, and the weather is getting a bit warmer and drier. Spring and summer on Vancouver’s North Shore are all about new adventures, new experiences, and getting closer to nature.

 

Here are some of our favourite activities to do outside on Vancouver’s North Shore.

  1. Head out on the water by renting a boat at Sewell’s Marina in Horseshoe Bay, Deep Cove Marina, or Lonsdale Boat Rentals in Mosquito Creek Marina.

 

  1. Hit the North Shore’s world famous mountain biking trails. With trails for beginners to experienced rides everyone can grab a helmet and experience the thrills.
