Standard Private Tour in brief

Day 1: Vancouver

Arrive in Vancouver and make your own way to the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre for 1 night. Day at leisure to explore this coastal city. (N)

Day 2: Kelowna

Drive through Fraser valley to the Okanagan wine region, taking in the spectacular scenery. We recommend visiting one of the many wineries near Kelowna or the Okanagan Wine and Orchard Museum, to learn about the history of British Columbia’s wine industry. Stay 2 nights at The Cove Lakeside Resort, on the western shores of Okanagan lake. (N)

Day 3: Kelowna

Join a full-day shared tour of the Okanagan wine region, escorted by a knowledgeable driver-guide. Visit five or six distinct wineries for tastings. Lunch will be at Mission Hill winery, where they grow their own produce and work closely with local farmers. (L)

Day 4: Osoyoos

Travel from Kelowna to Osoyoos, the most southerly town in the region, close to the US border. Drive along the shores of the Okanagan lake and stop at some of the fruit stands that are often found along the highway. Stay 2 nights at Watermark Beach Resort Hotel. Set on the shores of Lake Osoyoos, this resort offers beachfront accommodation with scenic lake and mountain views. (N)

Day 5: Osoyoos

Visit five wineries along the Black Sage Bench and the Golden Mile today on a full-day ‘hop on hop off’ winery tour. The Golden Mile prospers from receiving the morning sun, creating ideal conditions for growing grapes for white wine, while the Black Sage Bench basks in the afternoon sun, allowing powerful red wines to be cultivated. During your tour you will be served a gourmet lunch. (L)

Travel to Vancouver via the Okanagan Connector and the Coquihalla Highway. This scenic route provides some of the most stunning landscapes in the province, with snow-capped mountains, thick pine forests, flowing rivers and open green meadows.
