Vernon Experiences

You will certainly be amazed at what Vernon has to offer. Try venturing off Highway 97 when travelling through the North Okanagan and visit this family-friendly community.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your Canada holiday with us and are visiting Vernon.    

Enjoy a relaxing and scenic drive along the north bench to Lake Country, where we stop for tasting at one of our newest wineries, Intrigue Wines. Then we are off to indulge in a blind tasting test at Gray Monk. What fun and informational too. After the tastings, we enjoy a wonderful lunch at a Gray Monk. You will order off the menu, but be sure to let us know about allergies so we can inform the restaurant in advance. Lunch and the gratuity for lunch service is included in your tour. In the afternoon, we visit three additional wineries. Usually, they are Arrowleaf, Ex Nihilo, and Parallel 50, but we have new wineries that we could see, including The Chase, Blind Tiger, or Ancient Hill. We do have some choice depending on traffic and guests preferences.
