Up in the crisp North Shore mountain air, with the aroma of evergreens and a rushing river below, the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is lit up with hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights for the 11th year of Canyon Lights. Featuring the world’s tallest living Christmas tree — a 250 year old Douglas-fir at 153 feet tall and still growing!Canyon Lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge offers a festive experience for families from near and far.

Canyon Lights

  • Where: Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
    (3735 Capilano Road, North Vancouver)
  • When: On now until Sunday, January 8, 2017 (closed Christmas Day)
    11:00am to 9:00pm
  • Admission: Purchase online in advance or at the park. Individual tickets available or in Family Packs of 3 and 4. Canyon Lights tickets are valid all day with holiday activities beginning at 4:00pm. Capilano operates a free shuttle to and from Canada Place.

New this year: ‘Fireflies’, an interactive lighting display in the rainforest, ONLY at Capilano. Using giant flashlights, guests can magically awaken waves of tiny lights that glimmer and twinkle like fireflies.

The suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, Cliffwalk, the rainforest and canyon will again be transformed into a glistening world of festive lights and dazzling visual enchantment. Lights will illuminate Capilano River and the canyon’s cliff face. See the world’s tallest living Christmas tree (153 feet tall and growing) and search for the glowing owls in the Snowy Owl Prowl. Sing-along with the holiday band. Decorate gingerbread cookies, make Christmas crafts and take family photos throughout the park.

Pro Tip: If it’s open, grab a hot chocolate or pumpkin spice latte (with locally roasted Moja Coffee) in the Bridge House and purchase your tickets right there too. It’s on the same side of the road as the parking lot. Then when you’re ready, head over to the entrance to the park.

  186. I bring every single one of my visitors to this suspension bridge. it is the most important ‘tourist attractions’ and it’s always a hit. I always try to make it for the Christmas display as that’s my favourite time to go. Funny story is I was born in orange county California and my first time to Canada was expo 86 we went to the NO suspension bridge 23 years later I married a Canadian I have now lived in Canada 18 years my family visits from the states every year but my husband and I seem to think that we met back in expo 86 at the suspension bridge we were both there at the same day I think we remember each other as kids!!
    if I win this gift I would actually do a draw and give it away again to spread the love and I would probably go with the family who wins the ticket me and my husband that’s how I would use these tickets if I were to win them!
