Autumn and winter are the best times of year to see spectacular sunsets in Vancouver.
You need several conditions for those memorably vivid Vancouver sunsets: clear air in the immediate trophosphere and loads of polluting tiny particles high up in the stratosphere to scatter and magnify the reds and yellows. Add in some good breezes, brushstroke clouds, and a whole lot of water to magnify the effect and you’ve got magic. Vancouver also has glass and steel buildings that reflect light like a disco ball and mountains to provide a dark velvet frame around the city. It’s a festive last call before it all turns to black.
