Hot Springs Route Wedged into the rocky and remote creases of these stunning mountains are untamed natural hot springs that will soothe, inspire and rejuvenate. Drive along quiet, tree-lined lakeshores where rustic resorts, historic silver-rush towns, natural caves and backcountry trails will leave a lasting impression. Venture into this unknown wilderness on bike, on foot, in a kayak - then relax in warm, mineral rich water at some of the most enticing natural hot springs pools in the province. This most popular tour is approximately 800 km (500 mi).

Mountains & Vineyards The interior of British Columbia is christened with rich landscapes teeming with diversity. Lakes, mountains, deserts, valleys and exciting urban centres are ripe for exploration. For its length and limitless opportunities, the Mountains & Vineyards route reigns supreme. Discover pristine orchards, beautiful vineyards that hug the rolling hills and family-run farms. Taste the bounty of this fertile land. In the warm evening glow, settle into a mountain resort where wine tastings and locally-inspired food will win your heart. Approx. 1,250 km (775 mi).

Silvery Slocan Journey into the wild, lawless past when bars and brothels, saloons and silver, ruled the day. Visit ghost towns - rich with mine ruins, eclectic museums and turn-of-the-century buildings - that beckon anyone with a taste for adventure. Take a rugged, backcountry road to the top of a mountain, watch the eagles soar, smell the pines and know that the timeless aura of the legendary Silvery Slocan is still right at hand. End your day by easing into a lakeside town where cool cafes, streetside markets and a warm mountain culture will motivate you for what is yet to come. This tour is approximately 215 km (135 mi).
