The Annual NAFSA Conference is almost starting! Maybe you just arrived in Vancouver or you’re on your way but do you already know how to explore the city? We made a list of the Must See’s in Vancouver!
Grouse Mountain is located only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver and truly is the marriage of wildlife and civilization. In case you take the courage and go up there what I definitely would suggest, you have to experience “the eye” – the jaw dropping 360 degree view from the world’s first wind turbine with a viewing platform on the top, which is accessible by an elevator. So do not forget your camera!

Vancouver Art Gallery
The Vancouver Art Gallery presents ever-changing world-class exhibitions, from historic masters to today’s most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. The building also hosts collections of paintings from the beloved British Columbia artist Emily Carr.
Hell’s Gate Airtram
Vancouver’s last “Must See Spot” is an attraction for all outdoor fans which like to immerge in the nature around Vancouver and who want to experience the freedom Canada has to offer. I am talking about the Hell’s Gate Airtram in the scenic Fraser Canyon. The Fraser Canyon is located in the heart of British Columbia and is accessible through a scenic route through the B.C. Mountains and 7 huge mountain tunnels.
Already the drive to the Canyon itself is a great adventure. Several different landscapes and a vivid wildlife can be found and experienced on your way to Hell’s Gate Airtram. Once you arrived at the top rim of the Canyon, at the observation deck, you will have an amazing view all over the Canyon and the masses of water that are floating down the Canyon!
But most of all, don’t forget to visit the incredible INTERNeX Networking Reception the 1st of June in the Blarney Stone!
