Culinary tours in British Columbia explore award-winning restaurants and bustling markets; superb wineries, breweries and cideries; and fresh, local food from farms and orchards.
Discover a wide range of guided culinary tours (sometimes led by chefs) in southern BC, particularly near the Okanagan Valley, Cowichan Valley and Fraser Valley. City tasting tours in Victoria, Vancouver and Whistler visit restaurants and culinary neighbourhoods.
Some food tours incorporate outdoor activities, such as gourmet kayak trips in the Gulf Islands, cycling to wineries near Kelowna, and searching for seaweed in Sooke or mushrooms near Mill Bay.
Many self-guided culinary touring options are also available. Follow a Circle Farm Tour driving route or a wine tour, and stop at farms, markets and wineries. Food festivals showcase BC’s spectacular chefs and ingredients in one place.
