The Vancouver spirits scene has been heating up in the last few years, and you'll get a taste of what it is all about on a 3-hour distillery tour. Travel around the Canadian metropolis in a 'culinary cruiser,' stopping first at Liberty Distillery on Granville Island to sample vodka, gin and white whiskey. Soak up the booze with snacks at the Yaletown Distilling Company before you go behind the scenes on a private tour of the facilities. The final stop takes you to Odd Society Spirits, where you'll meet the award-winning distillery's owner and cap off your experience with a cocktail.

Vancouver Airport is located quite far from anywhere of interest and therefore walking is not recommended.

 YVR Vancouver Airport by Bike

Vancouver International Airport Bike

Cycling is a excellent alternative from the Vancouver Airport. Several bike lanes exist from the Vancouver Airport into both Richmond and Vancouver. Richmond is very flat, so cycling is quite easy. Additional routes exist into Vancouver and beyond.

Bikes are also welcome on public buses (maximum 2 per bus) at no additional charge.
