Mindful in Vancouver Series: Nature

June 19th, 2023

The hustle and bustle of city life can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from ourselves. Fortunately, Vancouver offers a vast array of natural environments that allow us to find inner peace and connect with nature. From hiking trails to urban parks, Vancouver’s outdoor scene provides the perfect setting for mindfulness and self-reflection.

Here are our top picks:

The other famous Urban Park
Stanley Park is one of Vancouver’s most famous landmarks and offers 400 hectares of lush forest, hiking trails, and beaches. Take a mindful walk through the park, listening to the sounds of nature, and taking in the beautiful scenery. Notice the colors, textures, and smells around you, allowing yourself to be fully present in the moment.
To enhance your Stanley Park experience, speak to our concierge team about our audio-guided routes delivered straight to your phone via RunGo.

Grind it out
Hiking the Grouse Grind is a challenging but rewarding experience. The trail is steep and challenging, but the views at the top are well worth the effort. As you hike, allow yourself to feel the physical sensations of your body as you climb, connecting with the natural surroundings and finding inner peace along the way.

Yoga’ta go to Kits Beach
Kitsilano Beach is a beautiful setting for a mindful yoga session. Take in the sights and sounds of the picturesque mountain-meets-ocean vista in front of you as you connect with your breath and let go of any stress or tension.

Chasing Sunsets
The Vancouver Seawall is a 28-kilometer path that winds its way along the city’s waterfront. Biking along the path is a great way to connect with nature and truly get a feel for the unique geography of the city. Speak to our concierge team to arrange for one of our electric bikes during your stay.

Canyon Crusade
Lynn Canyon Park is a beautiful natural park located in North Vancouver. The park features hiking trails, a suspension bridge, and a refreshing swimming hole. The mix of rushing water and soft forest trails under a canopy of tall trees makes for a particularly tranquil and fulfilling day.

Queen Elizabeth Park is a stunning urban park located in the heart of Vancouver. The park features beautiful gardens, a conservatory, and a scenic lookout. The gardens will entrance you with their abundant colour and meandering pathways. A perfect place to get up close to nature while seemingly having space all to yourself.
