The Greenheart Canopy Walk measures out more than 308 metres, with heights reaching up to 17.5 metres to give visitors a bird's-eye view of the rain forest without uncomfortable ocular transplants. Embark on your own self-guided expedition or head out with a tour. Tours take off every hour, guiding visitors through the lush biodiversity that surrounds the walkway, which was made using "treehugger" technology, a system of interlaced cables that leave trees physically and emotionally unscathed. Breathe in the bounty of Pacific coast rain forest as you greet an eclectic ensemble of treetop mosses, lichens, birds, Ewoks, and insects via sturdy treetop-cradled path. After examining the final frontier, peruse the garden shop for souvenirs served up at a 10 per cent discount.


The Vancouver Sun ran a photo-feature of the Greenheart Canopy Walkway. The Inside Vancouver Blog reviewed the UBC Botanical Garden, and five TripAdvisors give it 4.5 owl eyes.

  • As we rose above the ferns and small trees, the view of the forest was beautiful and illuminating. – Claudia Laroye, Inside Vancouver Blog
  • The Botanical Garden is interesting in itself, situated in a forest right at the tip of Point Grey in Vancouver. However, the canopy walkway takes the attraction to another level, literally. – Slow-travel, TripAdvisor

Customer Reviews

We had a great time as a family going through the garden. The kids loved the tree walk so much we did it 4x. We are definitely going to go back in late spring to actually see some blossoms.
