Just outside of Vancouver, there's a glowing path through the forest that tells a story. Vallea Lumina in Whistler is an actual winter wonderland where Cougar Mountain is magically transformed into a trippy and colourful experience. If you're looking for that one truly unique and breathtaking thing to do this holiday season, then this is absolutely it.

The walk is full of soundscapes, lights, and immersive glowing displays that will draw you into a story of two hikers looking for a hidden valley where stardust falls from the sky.

One thing we love about this new winter edition of the illuminated night walk is that it isn't holiday-themed.

That way, if you're tired of hearing Christmas music you'll still get to experience the magic of the season without all the usual holly jolly frills.

Plus, if you can't make it until after the holidays you're not feeling like you're missing out.

When you wander the forest of lights this winter it’ll be really cold so you’ll want to bundle up and put on that extra layer.

Vallea Lumina is in Whistler, just under a two-hour drive from Vancouver. A free shuttle in the village will bring you to the site of the night walk.

When you get back to Vancouver, you can warm up with a delicious holiday cocktail at a cozy spot in the city.

This magical experience comes from Moment Factory who is known for their insane multimedia light walks around the world.

This year, they just launched one at the Toronto Zoo that sounds incredible.

Whether this is your first time heading up to Whistler to check out Vallea Lumina or you’ve already been during their summer season, you're going to be blown away by the experience.
