The Fall & Winter hours of 3 must see Vancouver attractions.

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

As the season transitions through Fall into the Winter hours many major attractions will be changing their schedules in line with the changing of daylight hours and volume of tourism traffic.

Many of the attractions at Grouse Mountain have closed for the season due to weather conditions, however, there are still activities that will be carrying on until the resort changes for the Winter season and hopefully the snows will return for the ski season.
A few of the regular attractions such as the Sky Ride 8:45am-10:00pm, Theatre in the sky 9:30am-9:00pm and the Eye of the Wind (Wind Turbine) Guided Tours 11:00am-3:00pm – are all still in operation.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vancouver, British Columbia. The reason is simple, there are so many things to see and do.

Re-capture the feeling of wonder and excitement of the holiday season and be amazed by the hundreds of thousands of lights throughout the park. The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest and canyon are transformed into a world of festive lights and visual enchantment. See the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall!), go on a Snowy Owl Prowl, decorate gingerbread cookies and make your own Christmas card in the Winter Pavilion, and sing-along with the holiday band.
