Vancouver is a wonderful place to visit during the Summer months as you have the opportunity to experience many of the city’s festivals and events. It is also the peak season for wildlife watching with endless opportunities such as visiting the bears on Grouse Mountain or zipping around on a boat looking for marine life.

 Here are some examples of what you can enjoy in beautiful Vancouver.



Chinatown in Vancouver is Canada's largest Chinatown and has been humming busily for more than a century with vivid colors, exotic cuisine and a vibrant culture.






Grouse Mountain 


Grouse Mountain is one of the North Shore Mountains of the Pacific Ranges in the District Municipality of North Vancouver. In the summer, it features lumberjack shows, a birds of prey wildlife demonstration, a scenic chairlift ride, and a 2.9 km (1.8 mi.) hiking trail known as the Grouse Grind, as well as helicopter sightseeing.
