Tour around and in the park
Whether you are in the mood to burn off energy walking or cycling, or want to sit back and take in the views on a tour, discover and explore the park in a number of ways that suit you. Bike rentals are available at locations outside of the park. Or contact Tourism Vancouver for information on companies that provide extensive guided tours of the park.
Stop by the Stanley Park Information Booth, just inside the Georgia Street entrance, and find out about what you can do and see in the park. A great place to start if you are planning to tour the park on your own.
Horse-drawn carriage tours
From mid-March to the end of October, enjoy a relaxing, one-hour narrated horse-drawn carriage ride through the park's eastern side and its sites. Depart from the tour kiosk at the parking lot beside the Information Booth. Up to 20 passengers per carriage. No reservations required. Wheelchair accessible.
In the summer months, the Vancouver Trolley Company offers a daily 45-minute narrated hop-on, hop-off tour of Stanley Park. The old-fashioned San Francisco-style trolley stops at 15 of the park’s most popular spots. The shuttle is wheelchair accessible.
Throughout the year, a number of privately operated bus tours take visitors through the park. Contact Tourism Vancouver for more information.
Pedestrians and cyclists can circle around the park on the Seawall – which takes about an hour by bike, or three hours by foot.
Explore Stanley Park's trails by foot or bike, and take in the beauty of the forest.
