Golf enthusiasts will love the Richmond and Vancouver's rolling green spaces, mountain views and fresh sea air. Our Fairmont Concierge will be happy to arrange a tee off time. The closest golf course is the exceptional Mayfair Lakes Golf & Country Club.

Richmond and Vancouver are a cyclist's dream! There are trails in 16 regional parks, including the popular 6.2 miles (10 km) Seawall route along Stanley Park's shore and the 10.5 miles (17 km) route along the Spanish Banks. Richmond has excellent bike touring along the dykes, farms, and Steveston Village. Ask the Concierge for recommendations on bike routes and cycling activities in Vancouver.  Fairmont Vancouver Airport is also pleased to offer our in-house guests complimentary use of our BMW bicycles. Please ask our Guest Services team for more information; advance booking highly recommended. Keep in mind: 

  • Cyclists must remain on designated trails to minimize damage to the environment. 
  • Riding on sidewalks is illegal and violators will be cited. 
  • Cyclists must wear a helmet.

Fishing and charter boat rentals are only minutes from the hotel. The Concierge will be happy to assist you with your arrangements.

Whale Watching
A 20-minute taxi ride from the Fairmont Vancouver Airport will take you to the historic fishing village of Steveston. Once in Steveston, choose your adventure for the day! Steveston Seabreeze Adventures offers Whale Watching and Ecotours in 3-5 hour excursions. With the natural beauty of the Southern Gulf Islands and the Georgia Strait as a panoramic backdrop, marvel at the sight of majestic whales in their natural habitat. You’ll have the opportunity to see Orcas, Dolphins, and Humpback Whales, as well as seals, sea lions and eagles.
