We'll leave downtown Vancouver in a shuttle to Mt. Seymour where the trail starts. You take a break at the top for a spectacular view while enjoying snacks/lunch and an opportunity to work on your photography. The 6 hour tour includes 2 hours return transportation to the mountain resort, a 3 hour, 6km return, minimal elevation hike reaching 1,054 meters (3,460 feet). Rugged old-growth forests and frozen lakes lead the way to a spectacular viewpoint of mountains, the ocean and the city.

As a photographer I'll not only take beautiful photos of your memories, but also teach you landscape photography regardless of whether you carry a smartphone or DSLR.
