Picture of the week

Hi guys!

A few weekends ago I went with my girlfriend, Dieuwertje, to try out the famous ‘Grouse Grind’. Whoever I spoke to already warned me that it was going to be a tough hike, but worth it in the end. I was thinking to myself “yeah right, it cannot be that hard”.

I have to admit that it was not just an average Sunday walk. I could feel most of the muscles in my body when I finally arrived on the top, but overall it was a really nice feeling. Kinda like to conquer something.
The first thing I did when I arrived to the top was to order a double cheese burger with fries. After a serious work out like that it tasted even better 😀

If you have not tried it yet, it is a must and I can definitely recommend it.

Don’t forget to send us your picture of the week, so we can feature it in the future!

Cheers,
Mads

Grouse Grind Hike with INTERNeX!

With all of the rain we’ve been getting in Vancouver, I’ve been itching to get outside and enjoy the weather. If you’re in Vancouver, you know what I mean. Anyone is welcome to join Manouk and I tomorrow morning as we head to Grouse Mountain to hike their Grouse Grind trail. We will meet inside the Waterfront Station at 10 a.m. and take the sea bus to North Vancouver. From there we will hop on a bus that will take us straight to our destination.

What you will need:

  • Good hiking shoes / running shoes
  • Comfortable clothing
  • Bottle of Water
  • Packed lunch (optional)
  • Money ($10.00 Skyride down the mountain and bus fare OR 2 Zone bus pass)
  • Camera

The Skyride is optional, as you can hike back down the mountain. We can decide this once we get to the top, however the Skyride is a one-mile journey like no other.

High above towering Douglas firs, breathtaking views of the city of Vancouver, sparkling Pacific Ocean, Gulf Islands, and snowy peaks unfold as you journey up the mountainside. North America’s largest aerial tramway is your gateway to the majestic nature of the Peak of Vancouver, and an experience in itself.

Once we get to the top, there are many activities to do if we want to stay and have a few more hours of fun. They have :

You don’t have to bring a packed lunch, but it might be fun to have a little picnic at the top, it’s supposed to be beautiful out tomorrow. There is a few restaurants at the mountain and a Starbucks I believe if you want to buy food instead.

This will be a  fun adventure guys, hope to see you tomorrow at 10 a.m. outside the Waterfront Station!

Can’t make this activity? Join us for pub night at Metropole, June 23!

Cheers and have a great weekend
