What to expect

Discover the secrets of Stanley Park on this 2-hour exclusive walking tour with an expert guide. Explore the famous seawall, dark forested trails, secret cemeteries, historic totem poles, and notorious crime scenes.

Meet your guide at the fountain directly outside the Vancouver Aquarium entrance and then set off to explore Stanley Park, leaving the tourist trail behind for a lesser-known path through the forest. You'll hear the tale of Captain George Vancouver before you emerge onto the Stanley Park seawall for a picture-perfect view of the glittering downtown skyline and Coal Harbour.

As you walk along the seawall, you'll hear the tragic history of Deadman's Island and see the park's world-famous totem poles. A short walk later finds you admiring views of the North Shore Mountains, Burrard Inlet and the Lions Gate Bridge. You'll see loved public art and cross a long-lost cemetery hidden beneath your feet! Then, you’ll head back into the forest and move through giant groves of Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas Fir, some hundreds of years old. These are trails that few tourists use, granting you an authentic Pacific Northwest forest experience.

You'll also see the location of a long-lost indigenous village known as Whoi Whoi before you move back into the center of Stanley Park, where you'll hear the story of one of Vancouver's most shocking crimes. After the tour, you can continue your adventure with a visit to the Aquarium or go back to downtown to relax.
