3 Amazing Vancouver Day Trips To Take This Weekend

The adventurous city of Vancouver is home to many breathtaking scenes. You could spend months exploring this area and still not see all of the natural beauty it holds. The team at Kirmac Collision and Autoglass feels lucky to call this corner of the country our home, and we want to share with you a few of our favourite day trips for those who don’t have months to spend hiking, biking and boating through the southwestern tip of British Columbia. But we feel the need to warn you: spend a day with us in Vancouver, and you may never want to leave.

Bowen Island

There are many islands dotting the waters around Vancouver, but Bowen Island is one of the most accessible for tourists and offers a quiet retreat from the big city. Hop on a ferry or a water taxi for a 30-minute ride to the island, and once there, experience an outdoor enthusiasts dream, including:

    • Kayaking
    • Hiking
    • Mountain biking
    • Sandy beaches
    • Inlets and more

Cypress Mountain

Canada is famous for world-class skiing, and Vancouver doesn’t disappoint. Cypress Mountain is only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver and provides stunning views. In addition to downhill skiing, the mountain also offers snowshoe tours, a snow tube park, and cross-country trails.


If you’re looking for a quaint fishing village that has a rustic charm, head to Steveston for the day. The area has taken great strides in preserve its historic buildings, which means the scenery is beautiful and monumental. There’s also a salmon cannery that helps host the annual Canada Day Salmon Festival, and Steveston is also known as a premier whale-watching destination.
