What we’ll do

What else you should know

Am I fit enough to take part? The Grouse Grind is a serious workout and you require a base level of fitness.

Where you'll be

For special requests, I can offer a brief stop at the Capilano suspension bridge where guests can visit this mega tourist attraction on their own. The current admission fee for the Capilano suspension bridge is $50. On the weekends, sometimes, I can also offer to take guests to a very delicious brunch place. The average meal cost is $20 per person.
