It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the hap-happiest season of all 🎶 — to visit Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, where you’ll find Canyon Lights: A Winter Lights Festival. Going on now through January 26, 2020, view hundreds of thousands of lights creating a magical winter wonderland.
In this Avatar-type world, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is home to Treetops Adventure, where 7 suspension bridges are attached to 250-year-old Douglas firs, with viewing platforms reaching up to 110 feet above the forest floor. There’s also an attraction known as the Cliffwalk, which lies above the Capilano River (with only 16 anchor points in the cliff supporting the structure 😳) made up of narrow cantilevered bridges, stairs, and platforms. During Canyon Lights: A Winter Lights Festival, the suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, rainforest, and canyon are all transformed into an illuminated and festive experience. For the holiday season, you can go on a Snowy Owl Prowl, participate in children’s activities, and sing-along carols with the holiday band. Canyon Lights is open daily from 11 am-9 pm (closed on Christmas Day).
