Where to Find the Best Views in Vancouver
Hi, I'm Viator!

Hello. Hola. Bonjour. Ciao. 你好. Viator's global community has traveled the world in search of local knowledge and connections to help travelers find and experience the best things to do.

With lush green landscapes, an expansive harbor, and the mighty North Shore Mountains towering behind the modern city skyline, Vancouver offers some of the most beautiful views in the Pacific Northwest. Read on to find out where to catch them.

Seaplane tours

For bird's-eye views.

A seaplane tour is one of the best ways to take in the beautiful sights Vancouver has to offer. Soar over the mountains and the waterfront before splashing down back into the harbor at the end of the flight.

Vancouver Harbour cruises

For skyline snapshots.

A harbor cruise won't disappoint. Catch sight of Vancouver's most important landmarks as your boat glides through the water past the Stanley Park seawall, Science World, Granville Island, and Coal Harbour. Choose a sunset dinner cruise for extra ambiance.

Grouse Mountain

For scenic vistas.

Set 15 minutes north of downtown Vancouver on the North Shore, Grouse Mountain offers year-round aerial tram rides up to the mountaintop for a sweeping view of metro Vancouver and its surrounding waterways. Take in the scenery over a meal at the mountain's restaurant.

Stanley Park

For parkland panoramas.

A huge urban green space home to Vancouver's famous seawall, Stanley Park is a prime spot to explore on foot, by bike, or even in a horse-drawn carriage. In addition to the seawall path, plenty of walking and cycling trails crisscross through the park, looking out to Vancouver Harbour on one side and English Bay's beaches on the other.

The Vancouver Lookout

For sky-high views.

Opened in 1977, downtown's Vancouver Lookout stands 553 feet (168 meters) high. Take a 40-second elevator ride to the observation deck for 360-degree views of the city, ocean, and mountains. Enjoy a drink at the tower's revolving restaurant.
