Do you identify with these words? Do they speak to something inside that feeds a desire about getting outside?
These words speak to the focus and direction of Active Vancouver. The book will help you discover many of Greater Vancouver’s unique recreational gems. Vancouver is privileged. Surrounded by green space, good planning, great infrastructure, and a diverse topography of mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, and delta, the city has the necessary components for its citizens to be active. Truly experiencing Greater Vancouver's outdoors means having a variety of ways to be active and having the ability throughout all seasons.
This book presents a myriad of activities spanning multiple geographic areas and at various levels of effort. Each chapter introduces a different sport, along with several locations, and ability levels to experience activities in that particular sport. The chapters range from cycling to snowshoeing, hiking, and trail running, paddling routes for canoes or kayaks, and picnic sites that require a little effort to reach. If the thought of trying these activities for a first time is exciting, or you are enthusiastic to learn new destinations for a familiar sport, then this book is for you. However, this book is more than a book about learning new sports in new areas; it is also about fostering an awareness of the environment around you.
