Island Hopping At Its Best
Imagine taking a couple of days to drive from one island to the next. With this route you can. You'll enjoy everything about each island - the sea, the sand, the fishing boats and a lot more in between.

The Island-To-Island Tour
1 Start your tour in the "Island City" of Richmond. In the village of Steveston on the banks of the Fraser River, you can buy fish right off the boat or get the catch of the day at a restaurant on the pier. Or why not arrange a whale-watching tour.

2 Take Highway 99 north and 7A east to Port Moody, then go west on Ioco Road to Belcarra Regional Park. This is a wonderful spot to picnic. It has oceanfront beaches, mudflats and a unique floating walkway around Sasamat Lake.

3 Then take Highway 7A west and Highway 1 across the Second Narrows Ironworkers Memorial Bridge to North Vancouver. Walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in the world. It's suspended across a canyon 70 m (230 ft) above a river. Or go even higher 1,100 m (3,700 ft) above sea level on the Grouse Mountain Skyride. The view is fantastic, as is the hiking and dining. Sometimes you can see aboriginal carvers, singers and dancers.

4 Travel west along Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway, through West Vancouver to Horseshoe Bay. Nestled in the mountains at the mouth of Howe Sound, this is a place for lovers of seafood, art, antiques, boating and fishing. From here, you can take a 20-minute ferry ride to beautiful Bowen Island.
