19 Photos That Prove Fall In BC Is Like Nowhere Else In The World

There’s nothing better than the crisp days of Fall in BC. Something about the smell in the air and the leaves on the ground brings new life to the city.

Fall in BC is unlike any other place in the world because our city has the best of all worlds. We have the mountains, the ocean and lush forests to go exploring in. Even when it’s Fall, the weather is usually still mild enough to do a lot of popular hikes and spend time outdoors.

These are just some of the spots in BC with amazing Fall landscapes that prove this province is the best place to be to soak up the season.

Photos That Prove Fall In BC Is Like Nowhere Else

Stanley Park

Vancouver’s most popular park is one of the best spots in the world to see Fall foliage. It’s even one-fifth larger than New York City’s iconic Central Park.

English Bay

Unlike other Canadian provinces (cough, Calgary, cough) our Fall doesn’t include snow. English Bay is the perfect place to spend a sunny Fall day.


Whistler isn’t just for the Winter. Head here for a peaceful weekend getaway and stop by their enchanting Scandinave Spa to relax in nature.

Whytecliff Park

Chase the sunrise and sunset at this stunning gem in West Vancouver. It’s an amazing sight to see but maybe even a little more magical in the Fall months.

Fort Langley

Nothing beats a stroll in Fort Langley on a Fall day. Plus they have the cranberry festival which is a vibrant display of colours that really mark the season.


The quaint fisherman’s village of Steveston—what could be better? With charming shops, the boardwalk and lots of parks to discover, it has it all.


Vancouver Island has a plethora of scenic views to take in. Including this one showcasing all the colours of Autumn.

Richmond Country Farms

If you don’t go to a pumpkin patch at least once, is it even Fall? There’s lots of pumpkin patches to explore in Metro Vancouver, including this one in Richmond.

Granville Island

The bustling Granville Island is the best outing any season of the year. Head here during Fall to enjoy the colours and get some delicious treats at the market.

Cultus Lake

Not only a summer activity, lakes are also beautiful in the fall. Within 2 hour drive of Vancouver, Cultus lake is a perfect day trip and you can visit some corn mazes along the way.

Sylvia Hotel

Only in Vancouver would you find a hotel covered in ivy—that also happens to change colour as the seasons change.

Kootenay National Park

The Kootenay region is easily one of BC’s most beautiful places. But it’s definitely amplified when there’s some Fall foliage popping up.

Sunshine Coast

Just outside of Vancouver, you can hop on a 40-minute ferry to the serene Sunshine Coast. You can find the amazing Painted Boat Resort there and soak in all the colours of Fall.

Skookumchuck Narrows

This provincial park has a lot to offer with cozy cabins, Fall foliage and the biggest leaves you will come across.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is a must-visit in the Fall. Walk across the bridge, check out the treetop adventures and the cliffwalk with a hot chocolate in hand.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Vancouver has way too many lush parks to list, and Queen Elizabeth Park is definitely one of them.


Another amazing shot from Vancouver Island. With so many shades of red, orange and yellow—it’s no wonder people travel specifically to see Fall foliage.

Brandywine Falls

Waterfalls aren’t just worth exploring in the Summer. Head to this incredible spot in the Fall for breathtaking views you won’t soon forget.

Othello Tunnels

Explore all the beautiful trails by the Othello Tunnels for a peaceful little hike to enjoy all the season has to offer.
