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.

Explorer Tour offer and highlights

2-Hour General Explorer Tour: A tour that highlights a number of high-level topics in broad-brush strokes (airport operations and programs, universal design and accessibility, architectural design, and Indigenous art collection).

3-Hour School Tour: A tour that is developed for Grade-5 students that highlights a number of high-level topics in broad-brush strokes (airport operations and programs, universal design and accessibility, architectural design, and Indigenous art collection).

Indigenous Art Tour: This tour provides an opportunity for participants to learn about Indigenous artwork located in the pre-security areas of the airport terminal. Particularly, each piece of artwork will be described in great detail: history and context, culture and interpretation and significance.
