DAY 02: FERRY CROSSING FROM VANCOUVER TO VICTORIA

Today, you catch the ferry over to Victoria, BC’s capital city. The ferry is a great way to enjoy the scenery with Vancouver on one side and the Islands around you. If you are lucky, you might even spot some whales on your way! Overnight in Victoria.

DAY 04: FERRY BACK, ON YOUR WAY TO FRASER VALLEY

Located less than 100 km from downtown Vancouver, the Fraser Valley is an agricultural wonderland. Over half the province’s agricultural activity is centered here, including nearly 30 vineyards and 15 wineries. The wineries are dedicated to producing some of the most acclaimed wine labels in the province, from unique fruit wines and delicious sparkling wines to fresh, fruit-forward table wines. The winery experience is not limited to tastings – several also offer culinary experiences such as farm tours and bistro dining.  1 night in Chilliwack.


DAY 05: CHILLIWACK, FRASER VALLEY TO OSOYOOS

Chilliwack is a vibrant community; rich in history, outdoor adventures and farm experiences. Wander the great outside on one of its numerous hikes, spend an afternoon golfing, or fish along the mighty Fraser River with a glass of wine from the area.

DAY 07: OSOYOOS TO KOOTENAY AREA

Don’t leave Osoyoos without stopping the natural phenomenon Spotted Lake. The surface of the lake is made up of 365 spots in the summer, which change shape, colour, size. “Try and spot the heart shaped circle in the middle. This place is so unique and something tourists rarely see.”

Make you way to southeastern corner of British Columbia, to Kootenay region, home to a pristine stretch of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, mineral hot springs, alpine meadows and snow-capped mountains. Although it is a relatively new viticultural area, ground crops were first planted in the region many years ago, which led to the cultivation of orchards and today, in select microclimates, grapes have been grown since 1995. 2 nights in Castlegar.


DAY 08: CASTLEGAR, KOOTENAY AREA

People come to Castlegar for the area's exciting outdoor recreation and parks.

Many of the first families of the BC wine industry call this area home such as Gray Monk Estate Winery’s Heiss’ family, the Cipes of Summerhill Pyramid Organic Winery, and the Stewart family of Quails’ Gate Winery.
