- Type: Hiking
NileGuide Expert Says:
Ride in the gondola or use “Nature’s Stairmaster”, either way the view from the top is breathtaking.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Make sure to bring a camera, the view from the top is awe inspiring. If you're doing the Grouse Grind, be sure to bring plenty of water and pace yourself while you climb the very steep hike.
- Grouse Mountain is the closest mountain to the city and is open year round. After a 15 minute ride from downtown, make your way up the mountain in the gondola. Once you reach the top, the scene of the city and ocean in front of you will captivate you, leaving you speechless and in awe. If you're feeling energetic, skip the gondola and do the Grouse Grind. "The Grind", as locals call it, is not for the unfit and is a 2.9-kilometer trek up the mountain. Catering to all fitness levels, there are more relaxing walks on the mountain. If you're visiting Vancouver in the winter, you've come at the perfect time to take advantage of the mountain's skiing conditions. Grouse Mountain offers breathtaking views and unparalleled physical activities for various fitness levels.
