Imagine you're floating on a lake, the autumn breeze flowing through your hair, with your friends and some brews in hand. How serene does that sound? But wait, here's the best part...this could be your reality. Whether you want to just chill lakeside, go for a hike, or just float around all day, all of these options and more are available.

There are so many stunning lakes in and around Vancouver and the weather right now is pretty much inviting you to enjoy it (while it lasts). Tbh though, the beauty of B.C. lakes remains constant no matter what season it is.
