Make like a lo­cal and pull on some ac­tivewear be­fore head­ing to Grouse Moun­tain – a one-stop shop for out­door ad­ven­ture just 15 min­utes from down­town Van­cou­ver. You can take a ca­ble-car ride to the top ($45 in­clud­ing sea­sonal ac­tiv­i­ties) or brave The Grouse Grind and hike 2.9km up an ex­treme in­cline of 853 me­tres.

The peak is also home to two res­i­dent or­phaned GRIZ­ZLY BEARS, Grinder and Coola, who are part of an en­dan­gered wildlife refuge.

Get your adrenalin pump­ing ZI­PLINE TOUR ($116). You’ll reach speeds of up to 80km/h as you dart across the for­est.
