Why visit Vancouver?

For the perfect winter wonderland! Take the Sea to Sky Gondola* into the mountains and snap the perfect snowscape. Visit Canada's Northern ski resort at Whistler for plenty of snowdrifts, ski lifts and and cosy bars and restaurants. Walk the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which crosses the freezing Capilano River, lit up in a thousand lights and take the ferry to Vancouver Island for Butchart Gardens and explore its many magical surprises illuminated in the winter night.

When should I visit?

Winter months tend to have similar weather to that of the UK. With the weather in the mountains providing the perfect ski conditions between December and March, this is an excellent time to have the perfect winter holiday. Visiting Vancouver in the winter months can also lead to some cheaper hotel rates. Whilst visiting between June and September bring long warm summer days, this could come at a cost with more tourists and more expensive room rates. So, embrace the winter!
