Wine Tour - Where to stay, how long to plan for

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our trip to BC this October.

We fly into Vancouver on a Sunday night (6th of October) and then plan on staying at the airport. Pick up our car that next morning and then drive on to the wine country of Okanagan Valley, etc. for 3 nights at least.

Where to stay in this beautiful area? If we can't find a place in Pentc. is it okay to stay at one of the small wineries with accommodations in places like Osoyoos or Summerland?

What about the area east of Skaha Lake?

Our next plan was to turn car in and fly back from Kewlowna to Victoria rather than driving back/via Vancouver. Is this smart/dumb? Pick up a new rental and then do 2 nights in Victoria and then head up to Tofino (which we've been to before) or Campbell River. Which one?

We also want to go to one or two of the Gulf Islands but maybe you would recommend we concentrate elsewhere???

We have a total of 12 nights in BC.

Thanks!
