Best Time To Visit Vancouver - Time To Go To Vancouver

When compared to other locations in Canada, Vancouver has the mildest weather, with winter temperatures as low as 42 degrees (6C), and summer temperatures as high as 72 degrees (22C).

This makes for a mild change of seasons with little snow (except in the higher elevations).

  • June to August: The most ideal time to travel to Vancouver is during the summer (June to August), where the summers are cool and mild. This one is also the peak season and hence the travel and accomodation fares are expected to rise drastically.
  • September to May: However, those who like to avoid crowds and get an authentic feel for Vancouver can travel during the autumn and spring (September-October and March-May, respectively), although it is quite a bit cooler. But still, this period is also good to indulge in some outdoor activites and being an off season, its a double treat for budget travellers.
