British Columbia Interior & Coastal Mountain Explorer

British Columbia Interior & Coastal Mountain Explorer

Driving

Overview

Hit the ground running - or rather driving. This circle trip through our “backyard” has you explore some of the highlights our beautiful province British Columbia has to offer. Explore the diversity from the desert-like Okanagan Valley, to the lush mountains and valleys of the Kootenay region to the magnificent peaks and stunning coastal views of the Coastal Mountain region. With some fun activities already included, you will be sure to have a great time.

Trip Itinerary

Day One
At your leisure, depart Vancouver in the morning and start the road less travelled. We suggest leaving town along Highway 7, leading you through small towns, villages and past farmland and beautiful landscapes. On your way to Osoyoos, stop at the Othello Tunnels near Hope, go for a quick hike in Manning Park or pick up some delicious fruit at a fruit stand in Keremeos.
Day Two
Today is at your leisure. You can spend the day exploring some of the many wineries between Osoyoos and Kelowna, have a relaxing day by the beach, go for a bike tour (not included) or visit the Nk’Mip Desert & Heritage Centre in Osoyoos and learn more about the indigenous people that call these lands their home (admission not included).
Day Three
Leaving the desert land behind, your trip will see you travelling further east. Slowly but surely you will head into the Kootenays. The Town of Nelson is known for its stunning fall colours, an abundance of amazing restaurants and many quite little local stores.
Day Four
Today is at your leisure in Nelson. We included a fun social distancing approved mystery clue solving game for you that will have you explore Nelson in a completely new way. Later, you might want to drive out to Ainsworth Hot Springs for a Soak (admission not included).
Day Five
Say farewell to Nelson and the Kootenays. You will be driving north today. Along the way board a ferry to cross Upper Arrow Lake before arriving in Revelstoke (ferry crossing is complementary and cannot be reserved. Crossing is on a first come first serve basis). Located just on the Edge of Glacier National Park of Canada, this little Mountain Town offers an abundance of hiking trails.
Day Six
Today is at your leisure. Whether you enjoy the time at your lovely hotel, go for a hike in the National Park or a drive to Rogers Pass. Almost anything is possible today.
Day Seven
From the Mountains you will slowly make your way back West. But your holiday is far from over at this point. You will be driving back into the Okanagan Valley and can enjoy a 2 night stay in Kelowna.
Day Eight
Today we arranged a 4 hour self-guided bike tour along the Kettle Valley Railway for you. This activity includes pick-up and drop off at your hotel in Kelowna. You will be cycling through tunnels and across stunning trestles while enjoying beautiful views over Kelowna and Lake Okanagan.
Day Nine
Today a beautiful drive awaits you. You will leave the Okanagan Valley behind and cross into the Coastal Mountain Region. The Stretch between Lilloeet and Pemberton – the Duffy Lake Road – has been often named as one of the prettiest drives in the area.
Day Ten
Spend today exploring Whistler. We included the admission to the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre for you today but otherwise you are free to go for a hike, hang out by a lake, go on an adventurous activity or explore the village.
Day Eleven
All good things must come to an end. At your leisure, depart Whistler along the Sea-to-Sky Highway for your final drive home.
