Experience: Fall for Fishing along Highway 24

Highway 24 has long been known as British Columbia's "Fishing Highway".

 

This modern paved route runs East to West between 100 Mile House in the South Cariboo (atop of the Fraser Plateau) and Little Fort in the Thompson River Valley. This route mirrors the one used by fur traders centuries ago; and parts of the Hudson's Bay Fur Brigade Trail can still be seen near the East end, permanently preserved as a "heritage trail".

Attractions: Visit Revelstoke

Revelstoke is located on the Trans Canada Highway nestled between the Selkirk and Monashee Mountain ranges. It's 565 km from Vancouver, and roughly equidistant from Kelowna (192 km) and Kamloops (210 km).

 

Revelstoke was founded in 1880 as a transportation and supply centre for the mining gold rush. The community grew as the Canadian Pacific Railway was constructed and set up their head office in town. The construction of the Trans Canada Highway in 1962 eased access to Revelstoke, and tourism fast became an important industry for the local economy.

Todd's RV & Camping

Todd's RV & Camping 

Todd's RV & Camping is a family-owned operation now celebrating 56 years of family camping experiences. The property is at the North end of Peachland, on Okanagan Lake, perfectly situated 30 minutes from Kelowna in one direction, and 30 minutes to Penticton in the other.
 

Jean and Jeff Todd built their home adjacent to Okanagan Lake to raise their six children. A passerby asked if they could camp on the property, and the Todds decided to share their lakeside property with more people, and open a campground.

Circle Tour:

Pacific Marine Circle Tour 

Pacific Marine Circle Tour 

The Pacific Marine Circle Tour is a short 255km (158mi) journey along Vancouver Island's remote coasts, and offers beautiful views of the Juan De Fuca, Haro, and Georgia straights. The quiet ambiance of the island relaxes visitors with views of quiet parks and ocean-side towns. This short tour is best experienced over 2 to 4 days and will make you fall in love with southern Vancouver Island. Note: sections of the route are secondary roads without a centre line. There are narrow parts with a number of single lane bridges over several scenic streams.
