Spring Time Activities

The cherry blossoms are blooming and the days are getting longer which means Spring is in full force here in Vancouver! We’ve put together a list of Covid-friendly activities to enjoy this Spring. The great thing about this list of activities is that each of them are outdoors, allowing us all to get some much needed fresh air!

Spend time in nature

Spending time in nature can make all the difference when it comes to your overall mood and well-being. With the weather warming up and the days getting longer, it’s time to enjoy one of the best activities Vancouver has to offer! There is an abundance of hikes to choose from in and around Vancouver. We recommend North Vancouver's Lynn Canyon Park, Deep Cove or Golden Ears Provincial Park.

Kayaking in Deep Cove

As mentioned by Buzz Harries, Spring is a great time of year to rent a kayak to check out the wildlife in the peaceful calm waters before it gets really busy in the summer. Head to Deep Cove Kayak and they will set you up with all your gear for a fun day exploring The Cove!

Visit Maplewood Farms

Situated near Mount Seymour, Maplewood Farms is great for a family outing in the Spring. Here, you will get to see and interact with cows, rabbits, goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, and more. We also recommend bringing some lunch to enjoy a fun little picnic with the whole family while you’re there. 

Explore Granville Island

Plan an AquaBus trip to Granville Island to explore all of its unique boutiques and restaurants. Here, you can stroll around and take in the beautiful scenery or visit Vancouver’s most famous Food Market that is home to more than 50 vendors. 

Drive the Sea-to-Sky Highway

Highway 99, AKA the Sea-to-Sky Highway is considered to be one of the most scenic routes in B.C (as mentioned by travel writer Jane Mclean in her article Canada's Most Scenic Drives). Take in the breathtaking views as you drive towards Squamish or Whistler. Why not make a stop at one of the lakes or waterfalls on the drive up for a nice picnic?

Experience the Chilliwack Tulip Festival

The Chilliwack Tulip Festival is Western Canada’s largest and most recognized Tulip Festival. It is a truly spectacular experience to witness fields of over 10 varieties of Hyacinths and 17 different varieties of Specialty Daffodils. 

Walk The Seawall

Hands down, one of the best places to enjoy a sunny stroll in Vancouver is along the Seawall. We recommend making a stop at one of the beaches along your walk to soak up the sunshine or to watch a stunning sunset. 

We hope we’ve inspired you to get outside and soak in all that Spring has to offer!
