Vancouver Secrets of Stanley Park Walking Tour

Overview
Discover the jaw-dropping beauty – and sinister stories – of Stanley Park. Behind those majestic forests, picturesque gardens and stunning beaches lies a history of hidden graveyards, shocking crime scenes, and the ghostly lore of Deadman’s Island.
Highlights
  • Leave the Vancouver tourist trail and walk on paths through old-growth forests
  • Learn the stories behind Deadman’s Island and the lost village of Whoi Whoi
  • Take pictures of the strangest and most off-beat art in the park
  • Start and end at the Vancouver Aquarium with plenty of time to sightsee
What to Expect
Meet your guide and storyteller for the afternoon outside the Vancouver Aquarium, and get ready to learn the secrets of Stanley Park. Take a hidden path to the seawall, where you’re treated to views of Coal Harbour and hear the chilling tale of Deadman’s Island. A quick break gives you time to see authentic First Nations totem poles before returning to the secret side of the park. Tales of a forgotten cemetery, a lost village, and Stanley Park’s most notorious crime compete for interest with the public art you pass, as you stroll past centuries-old trees that have grown in the park since the time before Captain Vancouver sailed up the Burrard Inlet. Having seen a part of Vancouver even locals may have missed, your tour ends back at your starting point.
