The same goes for these must-visit spots just a couple hours outside of the city that are arguably even more breathtaking in the autumn.

Fall Day Trips near Vancouver



Hop on a ferry and head to the capital to enjoy a short but sweet stay eating comfort foods (hello, BeaverTails) and exploring all the city has to offer. Go for a scenic stroll along the harbour, check out the city’s bustling Chinatown neighbourhood, indulge in high tea at The Fairmont Empress or just soak up all the fall foliage at the enchanting Butchart Gardens.

Many flock to Whistler in the summer and winter months to take part in various outdoor activities. But the fall is the ideal time to go as it won’t be nearly as crowded as it is during the peak seasons. It’s also one of the best spots in the province to take in the beautiful scenery as the fall colours set in. Go for a leisurely walk around the village or just spend the day at the Scandinave Spa.

Othello Tunnels (Currently Closed)

Find this magical gem near Hope.

Adventurers can wander through the tunnels and take advantage of a lush network of hiking trails in the area. It’s also one of the most picturesque spots in the province, especially in the fall.
