Ready, set, bloom! Metro Vancouver is filled with an abundance of natural beauty. These tulip fields are worth the trek out to Abbotsford if you’re looking for a way to kick off Spring.
The blossoming Abbotsford Tulip Festival definitely brighten up the Fraser Valley with a sea of reds, purples, pinks and more.
The Abbotsford Tulip Festival is an hour drive away from Vancouver and will give you the ultimate backdrop for those Instagram posts.
While your feed will likely be flooded with photos of the perfectly colour coordinated fields, it doesn’t quite compare to seeing it in person.
In peak bloom, there is upwards of 1.5-million tulips to bask in. There’s even a “U-Pick” area to take some of the beautiful flowers home with you.
The farm began back in 1974 when Peter Warmerdam and his family purchased the land and grew gladiolus, tulips, daffodils and peonies. But it was his granddaughter’s idea to create fields of only tulips where people could wander through and soak up the vibrant display of colour.
Other tulip festivals have also made waves, including another popular one in Skagit Valley, Washington.
