Day 2

Vancouver

Vancouver is known to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Canada. A relaxed way of life, clean and healthy living make it a popular holiday destination. Today is yours to explore the wonderful city, We would suggest a hop-on hop-off city tour to familiarise you with its many districts then get out to explore. Take a whale watching excursion from the harbour, a float plane aerial tour, spend time in Stanley Park exploring the gardens and totem pole collection, try some retail therapy in Gastown and make a visit to Capilano Suspension Bridge. Evenings are well catered for, with a whole host of international restaurants, gastro pubs with onsite breweries and a great bar scene.

Osoyoos

Today you drive south toward Osoyoos, a beautiful little town where you will have two nights to explore. You cannot visit Osoyoos without heading to the lake, renowned as the warmest lake in Canada! Try paddleboarding, kayaking or perhaps a boat rental. If time allows, relax on one of the lakeside beaches at Gyro or Cottonwood. You may choose to take the Pioneer Walkway along the waterfront or explore the shopping on Mainstreet. We also suggest taking a trip to the Nk’Mip Cellars, which is the first Indigenous owned winery in Canada. As you have two days, why not take the short drive to Covert Farms where you can take a culinary journey through Canada’s desert? One of Canada’s Signature Experiences, it is well worth the time. Explore the farm orchards and u-pick fields before enjoying a private wine tasting session and local dishes.

Perhaps take a leisurely ride along Skaha Lake to Okanagan Falls or, should you be more adventurous, Myra Canyon Trestle is a must. After your cycling adventure, you deserve to visit one of the 100 wineries which can be easily reached within an hours drive.
