Deep Cove in North Vancouver

EC Vancouver offers different activities after school on two days every week. Students can sign up for these activities on EC online and join them together with their classmates. The group meets at the school’s front desk to spend the afternoon together and to engage in different activities in and around Vancouver. A very popular destination is Deep Cove in North Vancouver to hike to Quarry Rock. It’s quite a journey to go there by bus but students already make friends with each other on the bus and get to enjoy the beautiful views. Once the bus arrives at its last stop which is in Deep Cove, the students leave the bus with excitement and are curious to explore the stunning nature. The walk from the bus stop to the actual hiking path already reveals how amazing Canada’s nature is. Most students have never seen anything like that in their lives before, so they are extremely impressed and take a lot of photos. Entering the official hiking path is comparable to entering another world. From one moment to the next you are surrounded by trees and plants only and you feel as if you are in the middle of the rainforest. The hiking path leads you up and down on wooden stairs and you walk over unique wooden bridges to cross astonishingly clear creeks and small waterfalls. Several stops along the way leave enough time to take pictures of everything and to enjoy the silence and idyll away from the big and noisy city. Sometimes these breaks are also needed to catch your breath as the hike can be quite breathtaking – not only because of the views but also because of having to climb stairs and even roots. It is important to bring the right shoes, enough water and … Read more

Deep Cove

Several suppressed gasps emerged with the first encounter with the wooden stairs that would lead us into the woods, but nobody wished to complain out loud. Morale was high here at Deep Cove and no stair could ruin that. Earlier, with the first sunbeams cutting through the spring clouds, conditions never seemed any better for a hike. So, not surprisingly, the communal lobby was already crammed with people way before departure. All students had but one thing on their minds: Quarry Rock, one of the most beautiful places around Vancouver.   Catching breath The hour-long bus ride was musically decorated with a cacophony of student’s chatter that wouldn’t stumble for the next couple of hours. After a long day of classes, people just had a lot to catch up on. Who could blame them? This sun ingested day out screamed for some nice English conversation time. Halfway uphill the chatter started to make way for the more natural sounds one could expect in the woods. Climbing Deep Cove’s quarry rock started to take its toll and precious breath oughtn’t be wasted on talking. Moreover, we needed to save some breath for it to be taken away by the view that was waiting for us uphill. An amazing view Once up on the rock, the exhausting climb was soon forgotten. The wide and scenic view managed to live up to its skyrocketing promise. Almost directly, the pandemonium of students’ shooting cameras caused a stroboscopic experience that could’ve been noticeable from space. This sure was a special view. The announcement that this was only our halfway point – and that we had to walk all way back – hit like a bombshell. The promise of ice-cream and doughnuts lured most of us back down, but for others even doughnuts couldn’t do the … Read more
