The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is rapidly establishing itself as a destination for confirmed foodies and those just looking to indulge and relax.
This region boasts an incredible diversity of cuisines rarely seen elsewhere, and a highly productive farming and fishing industry. Many restaurants focus on using ingredients from local farms and markets. Culinary schools and tours give visitors the chance to learn about local foods and some of the best ways to prepare them.
The Fraser Valley is fast becoming a notable wine-producing region, specializing in northern-climate grapes and fruit wines. More than ten wineries and vineyards are found here, most offering tours, tastings and even meals. Breweries and brewpubs (particularly in Vancouver) serve up craft beer to thirsty travellers.
After time spent tasting and sampling the region’s food and drinks, visit Harrison Hot Springs to relax in natural mineral waters. There are also many options for spa-goers, including spa resorts, romantic getaways, and day spas.
