The Peak of Christmas is one of the best events the city has to offer. You can go snowshoeing, watch Christmas movies in a cozy little theatre, hit the ice rink and get some beautiful photos walking through this dazzling light tunnel.

Canyon Lights, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

You can find all the Christmas lights at this North Shore park. Walk across the suspension bridge, the cliff walk and the treetop adventures to soak up all the pretty sights. It also has this gorgeous area with just white lights and decor that looks like it’s just floating in the air.

Festival of Lights, VanDusen Botanical Garden

Soak up all the vibrant colours and music the holiday season brings at this popular festival. It takes over the stunning park with an impressive array of twinkling lights that will brighten up your Instagram feed.

Everyone was looking forward to the return of this light dome, by Nordstrom. It’s free and it’s the perfect photo-op. There’s even mistletoe in the middle to share a special moment with your loved one.

Pacific Centre even has festive seating this year. Get off your feet after a long day of shopping and take a break in one of these ornamental chairs.

Inside A Tree, Vancouver Christmas Market

Get a picture inside an actual Christmas tree at the Vancouver Christmas Market this year. Then you can grab some mulled wine and check out all the vendors.

Reflections Winter Wonderland Patio

It’s one of the most boujee places in the city, and it’s a must during the colder months. The Winter Wonderland patio is all decked out for the holidays and even has a delicious seasonal menu to help keep you warm.

Christmas Tree, Vancouver Art Gallery

If you don’t get a picture with a giant Christmas tree, is it even Winter? The one by the Vancouver Art Gallery is a must, and with the busy downtown core in the backdrop—it’s the perfect picture.

Twinkling Lights, Granville Island

The light display on the quaint Granville Island does not disappoint. Walk under these twinkling lights for a magical experience, and festive selfie.
