Just a quick road trip away from Vancouver, you can have an autumn adventure in Fort Langley, where you get the best of the countryside and small-town vibes.

Being in this fairytale town is like being the main character in a cozy romantic comedy. Here, you’ll find hidden gem local shops and restaurants with treasures so satisfying you’ll be planning your next trip out to Fort Langley while you pack up the car to go home.

Here’s what you can’t miss in Fort Langley this fall:

Fort Langley farm experiences

You can pick the perfect pumpkin at Aldor Acres’s fall pumpkin patch and say “hi” to the animals there, including donkeys, goats, sheep, bunnies, and more.

For a colourful and unique fall experience, take the cranberry plunge at Riverside Cranberry Farm and waddle around in the bog of berries.


Finally, if you want to feel like you’ve stepped back in time, it’s worth checking out the Fort Langley National Historic Site. Chat up the blacksmith, pan for gold, and imagine what life was like by the Fraser River over 100 years ago.

Veggie Bob’s vegan comfort food is a favourite amongst plant-based eaters, while Little Donkey’s burritos have a special place in our hearts.

Before you leave, if you aren’t already too full, pick up some chocolatey Guinness Baileys Cake at Blacksmith Bakery.
