The Okanagan is world renowned for their wineries, but the steadily growing cidery scene is exciting to witness. A cold glass of cider on a hot Okanagan summer day, you can’t beat it. If you're up to it, adding a few cideries to your wine tour itinerary is delicious way to cleanse your palate in between wine tastings.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Hiking in the mountainous Kananaskis, Alberta! The mountain ranges are never ending resulting in spectacular views as far as the eye can see. Be sure to pack a good lunch, and be up to date on your hiking safety as you are almost guaranteed to run in to a lot of wildlife!
