Explorer Tour

YVR is home to incredible works of art, meaningful stories and unique architecture. We would be happy if you could join us for a free guided interactive experience to learn more about North America’s number one airport.

The Explorer Tour program offers free tours for everyone. Apply for a tour early because this popular program fills up fast! Safety and security is important to us. So please keep in mind that we can only explore pre-security areas of the airport.
