Grouse Mountain is one of the top attractions in Vancouver, with huge numbers coming to walk the trails in the summer and ski on them in the winter.
It took us about 40 minutes in total to get up to Grouse Mountain after taking the Seabus across to North Vancouver and then catching the 236 bus which dropped us off right at the entrance to the resort.
Then came a ride on the cable car up to the top of the mountain. It looked a bit daunting at first as this is one seriously high peak, but as soon as we were in motion and we could see the incredible views of Vancouver, it wasn’t so bad after all.
Once we got off the cable car we made our way straight to the bear habitat and saw the two giant grizzly bears who call Grouse Mountain home. As we you can see here, we interrupted one of the bears while it was taking a bath. We stuck around for the bear talk given by one of the rangers and then had a wander around one of the trails which passes by the ski lift, another of the things to do at Grouse Mountain.
When it started to get a bit chilly, we headed back down towards the city centre to enjoy our last night in Vancouver.
