Belcarra is a great day trip from Vancouver (pronounced ďVancooverĒ) that takes between 45 minutes to an hour to get to depending on the traffic. Itís actual name is Belcarra Regional Park though people do live in the area.


Thereís just so much to do in the park that its kind of like all the things to see and do in Vancouver but its all in nature!

The park itself is 1700 acres (687 hectares) in size just east of the city and is one of the best places outside of the city to go for a picnic and see wildlife year round.

With so many things to do here you can make it your day trip two or three times and still not see it all!

Thereís fishing (donít forget to get your fishing permit!) hiking trails, mountain bike paths or you can spend your time on the water in a canoe or kayak and paddle in the calm waters.

A lot of the scuba diving schools in Vancouver bring their classes out to the park to learn to dive because the visibility and calm water is an ideal place to learn to dive. Can you imagine it if you caught one of the divers on a fishing line? That would instantly be "the big one that got away!"

Some of the divers that go there catch crabs while on their dive and then have them for a fresh meal.

Itís a good idea to get a map of Vancouver that also shows you Belcarra area as well before you go.

When you go from Vancouver to Belcarra Regional Park, I suggest you think about leaving before it gets too dark because its not that hard to get lost on the dark roads if you arenít use to them.
