Our first ActiveDays trip across the water!
We’re getting out of the bus and heading onto a ferry for our first ActiveDays trip to Bowen Island! Take a 20 minute ferry ride and you’ll be on island time … away from the stresses of city life.
We will meet as a group to board a bus in Downtown Vancouver to the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal and walk on to the 10:15am ferry over to Bowen Island.
After we get off the ferry, we will guide you on a hike to Killarney Lake, an easy and quiet 9km loop trail through beautiful mossy forests that opens up to a hidden lake on the island. We’ll end the day by exploring the cute shops of Snug Cove by foot with all the new friends we’ve made before returning to the city.
We’re not quite ready to let go of summer yet, so come relax and unwind with us on this October weekend!

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH ACTIVEDAYS
To us, facilitating this event is about creating an environment that you can engage with in your own way. This is your experience and everyone has their own relationship with the outdoors and their bodies. We want to meet you where you are at — you can take part in the hike, or wander off on your own adventure.
Active Days is also a community. This is an inclusive space to meet new people, share stories and have fun! To us, there is no better place to get to know someone than the outdoors. We all share a desire to get out, explore and move.
All ActiveDays participants are required to sign a waiver. We will bring printed copies of the waiver to sign on the bus. You can find a digital copy of a sample waiver HERE
