Fall Day Trips

The Summer days may be over but this is the perfect time to escape from the city. These Fall day trips are some underrated options that will give you a much-needed break and a chance to reset.

Fall Day Trips From Vancouver

Bowen Island

Just a 20-minute ferry ride from West Vancouver’s Horseshoe Bay, this is the ultimate spot to take all your stresses away (even just for the day). It’s a haven for relaxation with lots of nature walks, beachcombing and kayaking to take part in.

Robert’s Creek

The vibrant little artsy community on the Sunshine Coast is the most idyllic day trip from Vancouver. It’s just under two hours away from Vancouver and has a lot to offer. Check out the pier, go forest bathing at Cliff Gilker Park and have some comfort food at the cozy Gumboot Cafe.


Many think of Squamish as a place to pass through on their way to Whistler. But Squamish is an awesome place to go for the day, and it’s just under an hour away from Vancouver. Besides the Sea-to-Sky Gondola and Shannon Falls, you can go throw back a few pints at Backcountry Brewing.

처음으로 타본 카약~🚣‍♂️ 날씨가 사진으론 많이 흐려보이지만 사실상 그렇게 흐리지 않았다 햇볕이 강하지 않아 오히려 놀기 좋았다😊🌴 처음엔 몸을 조금만 기울여도 보트가 흔들려서 무서웠는데 조금 적응되고 나니 안무섭고 즐거웠다 !!! 카약을 타고 도착한 해변에서 도시락을 까먹었는데 풍경도 좋고~ 크으…완젼 꿀맛이였다😆😆 분위기가 몽환적이여서 천국온 기분이였달까…..🙄 다음에 또 해야지!!!😆 . . . . #캐나다 #워킹홀리데이 #캐나다여행 #워홀러그램 #카약킹🚣 #재밌다 #천국같은곳#평화롭다 #canada #penderisland #kayaking

A quaint place to forget your worries and just take in your surroundings. It’s just over 2.5-hours away from Vancouver but totally worth it. Enjoy the great outdoors with trail walks and kayaking or melt your stresses away at Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa.

Manning Park

Just under 2.5-hours away from Vancouver, this beautiful park has a lot to offer even in the Fall months. The cooler weather makes biking the area a lot more fun, or you can go canoeing. The crisp days also mean the stargazing is at its all time best.
