This program offers you the ability to set your own schedule and route in Stanley Park with your own private guide.  Come alone or with a friend (maximum 2 participants per tour).  This is the perfect opportunity for participants looking to avoid group programs for an intimate experience with the birds of Stanley Park. You can request to focus on specific bird groups like the passerines or pelagic birds, or maybe there’s one particular species you’re hoping to spot. Learn about the conservation status of the species or the work being done to enhance its habitat.  Let us know what you would like, and we will do our best to make it happen.



These private walks will be specially designed for your birding level and interests — the perfect program for people looking for specific species and a more personal exploration of Stanley Park and its birds.

A moderate level of fitness is all that is required. Trails in Stanley Park vary from flat for beginner to intermediate with a few steep sections.


Unless the weather is unseasonably wet or stormy, expect to dress for warm summer conditions with a couple of extra layers for the cooler mornings or evenings. Rain is possible, so a light rain jacket is recommended. Although it is likely to be sunny, even overcast conditions require sun protection.
