Wander through a luminous paradise for free!

If the chilly temperatures have been keeping you indoors, you now have a great reason to bundle up and head outside. A magical illuminated trail has just opened along Toronto's waterfront, and it's worth facing the snow for. You can wander through giant glowing sculptures at Toronto's Winter Light Exhibition this season.

Ontario Place's enchanting light installation officially opened on February 8.

You can visit the area to see all sorts of whimsical illuminated structures.

The event runs daily until March 29. The best part is, it's totally free to see.

Head over to West Island and immerse yourself in a radiant winter paradise.

From Fridays to Sundays, you can cozy up by crackling bonfires and enjoy tasty treats like s'mores and hot chocolate. 

The theme of this year's exhibition is 'Cocoon'. All of the installations reflect the subject in their own unique way.

You'll come across a floating cloud made entirely of ping pong balls at the THOUGHT installation.

Lumina is an immersive structure filled with bright pink lights. You can enter into a massive cocoon that seems to go on forever.

A Long Story III takes over the entranceway bridge. Its glowing coils give the effect of a serpent draped over the structure.
