Best hotels in North Vancouver

North Vancouver Hotels

While the ‘main’ portion of Vancouver is a glossy waterside utopia of cosmopolitan delights, take a trip over the sapphire water and you’ll see a different Vancouver altogether. The North Shore is swathed in spectacular natural scenery, where outdoor pursuits are always moments away from top notch city-styled comforts. Mountain bike through lush rainforest, kayak along cool rivers, then ski down snowy mountain slopes before returning to the skyscraping city for après ski hijinks. North Vancouver is for city slickers with a wavering fancy for the great outdoors.

Things to see

From winter sports to family entertainment, Grouse Mountain is a towering hive of activity all year round. Just 15 minutes from downtown, the Mountain Skyride carries passengers on a breathtaking one-mile ascent to all the high altitude attractions. If you’re one for more grounded outdoorsy pursuits, the Capilano River Regional Park a must-visit. Veined with hiking and biking trails, it’s an unspoiled haven of giant fir trees, cut through by the babbling waters of the Capilano River. A short trek south and you’ll find one of North Vancouver’s biggest attractions, the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Hanging a heady 229ft above the river, a serene stroll along the crossing yields plenty of scenic photo ops. For canoeing or kayaking, set sail from the restful bay of Deep Cove. The district has a distinct small town atmosphere, offering plenty of R&R. For waterside retail therapy, Lonsdale Quay Market is packed with 80 shops and services, selling everything from fresh produce to chic fashion.

Where to stay

From there it’s just a short trip to the Waterfront Station where you can hope onboard the SeaBus, which runs four times an hour.
