Map Guides

Explore Vancouver through self-guided tours.


VHF has produced a number of map guides which explore Vancouver’s diverse historic neighbourhoods. Current guides are available in print from the locations listed below. Many of our older guides are out of print, but work well on tablet computers.

Historic Kitsilano Map Guide

Our newest map guide reveals the changes that have taken place in Kitsilano, offering a glimpse of the people who lived there and shaped the neighbourhood. This particular guide focuses on the Northeast corner of Kitsilano including three Fairview sites related to the former village of Sun’ahk. Discover Historic Kitsilano on your own with our online PDF or pick up a copy at our office.

Thank you to the Historic Kitsilano Map Guide sponsors Molson Coors Canada, RR Donnelley and the Corkscrew Inn B&B.

West Hastings Walking Tours with John Atkin

We once again partnered with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association to offer a series of free short lunch time walking tours starting in July 2016.

The walks explored the history of one of Vancouver’s most fascinating corridors which has evolved from financial centre and private clubs, to bustling shopping district, to densely populated office space.
