6. By Seaplane

For a unique sight-seeing experience, book yourself a Seaplane tour!  Choose from a wide-range of scenic options like the Vancouver Classic Panorama Tour, a 20-minute flight over the city and the North Shore mountains.

5. By Skytrain

One of the most frequented modes of transportation is the skytrain.  Fairly easy to navigate and takes you from point A to point B and everywhere else in between.

4. By Car

You don’t need a car to for sightseeing in the city but if it’s raining out, or if you’re making trips over bridges and to multiple destinations, renting a car or signing up for one of the many car-share programs is a good option. 


3. By Bike

Our city is extremely bike-friendly.  Rent a bike from one of the many bike rental spots along Denman Street in the West End, and get pedalling! We recommend touring the city via the Seawall.

1. By foot

Personally, we think Vancouver is best explored by foot! How else would we uncover the countless hidden gems and must visit holes-in-the-walls in the city?  Plus, walking is good for you.
