Vancouver Walks – Buntzen Lake and Diez Vistas 

Vancouver Walks – Buntzen Lake and Diez Vistas 

This walk is perfect! You hike around Buntzen lake, climb a small mountain that has some gorgeous views (the Diez Vistas). Then swim in the lake before an easy hike back to the car park.

This is my second Wanderung hike, you can read…

Queen Elizabeth park is perched on the top of a hill and surrounded by pretty gardens. Plus it’s just a hop, skip and a jump from our apartment. If any of my friends visit us, I am pretty sure I’ll need to bring them here! So, although I have been…
