As an alternative to downtown Vancouver, exploring Granville Island and the area around False Creek is an excellent way to experience the heart of the Vancouver while remaining close to the ocean every step of the way. Your group will enjoy exploring parts of the island that they have never seen before, while visiting the famous Granville Island Market, Granville Island Hotel, Charleson Park, the Seawall and many interesting and unique businesses. Your group will also see a floating neighbourhood, some great public art and even hear a busker or two.
The following map depicts the hunt area of the Granville Island scavenger hunt. This hunt area is smaller than our downtown version and so you should consider hosting a shorter program for your group – we suggest 90 minutes to 2 hours as a sufficient duration for this location.
