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.
- 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.
