City and Hike? Absolutely!
Combine the pleasure of your Vancouver visit with our tour into nature. Nowhere else in Canada is a city so close to mountainous terrain, rainforest and hiking trails. Slow Down Tours offers guided day trips for private groups around Vancouver and Whistler. The focus is on enjoying the stunning scenery and the experience of being in the outdoors while learning about the natural environments of beautiful British Columbia.
All 1-Day tours are available upon request, from May through October.
CITY TALK & RAINFOREST WALK
(easy), allow 6 to 7 hours

We escape directly the rush of the city and there is hardly a better route for that than the super scenic Highway 99, which is also called Sea-to-Sky Highway. With several stops along the Howe Sound and an easy hike in an old-growth forest where you will gain an appreciation and further understanding of the plants that flourish in this area. Spending time in the coastal temperate rainforest is a spectacular experience that involves all senses.
