You can head north of the Burrard Inlet to the North Shore community of North Vancouver, which lies between The Lion's Gate Bridge and Indian Arm, which poke north from Burrard Inlet. It has two large parks. The heart of the community is Lonsdale, which rises from the water's edge at the Seabus terminal. Nature lovers will enjoy Lynn Canyon's hiking trails and Mount Seymour's ski hill, and Deep Cove's water sports.

Sustainable Travel & Eco-Tourism

Going Green: Eco-friendly content!

We recogize that travel inherently uses a lot of energy and a lot of resources, since it involves moving us (and our luggage) large distances around the world. Here are a number of suggestions for reducing our impact as well as our "carbon footprint".


Travel Feature

For those travelling between Canada & the US, those entering (or re-entering) the U.S.A. BY AIR are required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document. As of January 31, 2008, these rules include those entering the USA BY LAND OR SEA.
