When to fly to Vancouver

Peak Season:
July through August is when most visitors take vacations to Vancouver. Apart from the weather, there is a packed calendar of events including the Vancouver International Film Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and Vancouver Folk Music Festival, and the HSBC Celebration of Light fireworks competition. Skiers and snowboarders start to arrive in mid-December, and the mountains’ peak season peak is January/February.

Shoulder Season:
May and June and September and October are great times to visit Vancouver. The summer crowds are starting to melt away and the weather is generally good. Early spring and late autumn are great times to go whale watching.

Off Season:
Late fall is very rainy. If you don’t mind getting wet you may be able to get discounts on travel and accommodations. Winter, especially the months of January and February, can be cold and snowy.

Overview

The city by the Pacific Ocean is framed by snow-capped mountains and shimmering seas. Vancouver’s climate (milder than the rest of Canada’s), natural wonders, friendly multicultural vibe, gastronomy and shopping mark it out as a must-visit city. Once travellers arrive on their flights to Vancouver, they may just decide to spend the rest of their lives there. Vancouver is a regular in the list of most livable cities.

A multicultural mosaic, there are busy Chinese, East Indian and Italian districts. The heart of the city beats most strongly in the 400-hectare Stanley Park. It contains such world-famous features as Siwash Rock, the Lost Lagoon and the 8.8km seawall walk. Within a 30-minute drive of downtown Vancouver are Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour, all with night-skiing facilities.

BC Ferries sails the Georgia Strait connecting Vancouver with Vancouver Island (and, of course, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia), and the gulf islands – Galiano and Saltspring are the best known. Within closer reach is Bowen – just a 20-minute ferry trip from Horseshoe Bay – an enchanting little island where the rain forest meets the ocean.
