Once you are back on the ground, your guide will introduce you to the world-famous natural beauty of the west coast on a drive through Stanley Park.

From there, you will venture outside of the city and bask in the beauty of the surrounding mountains and landscapes where the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge awaits you. Muster up the courage to cross the swinging bridge 230 feet above the river.
