This magical lit-up forest in BC features the world’s tallest Xmas trees
Winter is in full swing and one of British Columbia’s most iconic landmarks is embracing the festive feels in a truly dazzling way. The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is playing host for the 11th straight year to Canyon Lights, a winter lights festival that has to be seen to be believed. Well then, let’s take a look, shall we?
You can bring anyone here, your family, your friends, an awkward first date… Pretty much everyone will enjoy the aesthetic simplicity of the forest lit up at night. Except maybe for the person who is afraid of heights, you might want to stay home for this one.
With hundreds of thousands of lights strung up around the area, Canyon Lights turns an already impressive spot into a unique and magical holiday showcase.
The Treetops Adventure is a series of bridges that are all attached to eight 250-year-old Douglas fir trees. Each of these bridges has viewing platforms that are as high as 110-feet above the forest floor. It’s like doing a skywalk through an enchanted forest. Actually, forget the simile, that’s exactly what it is.
In fact, since these trees are lit up, they have become known as ‘the 8 tallest natural Christmas trees in the world’. Very, very impressive.
Canyon Lights has been delighting Vancouverites and tourists from all over for years and seems to be getting better with age.
