SPRING FORWARD!

It's time to come out of hiding and embrace
all things sunshine and flowers.

 

 

ESCAPE THIS SPRING BREAK

Boredom and kids just don't mix. We have a bunch of ideas to keep everyone entertained starting with our soothing hot springs pools. Get a trail walk in, head down to the Village and explore our restaurants, shops and art gallery, see the Sasquatch Museum located at the Visitor Centre, enjoy a boating adventure with Shoreline Tours or Harrison Eco Tours, and explore our Circle Farm stops. (Please check each Circle Farm Tour partner's website for opening dates.)



EXPERIENCE OUR CIRCLE FARM TOUR

Tour a wonderful mix of things to see, do, smell, and taste! 

Farmhouse Natural Cheeses: farm-fresh artisan cheeses and specialties made right at the farm. Kids can see and pet the sweet animals, too!

Back Porch Coffee Roastery:  See the pottery & basketry studio, watch coffee being roasted in a circa 1919 Flame Roaster, head to the barn for antiques, collectibles and décor items.



Kilby Historic Site: Experience a 1920's living historic site with costumed interpreters including a 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House and Hotel, and Post Office. Pet animals and enjoy activities!

Country Road Ride - A 26-km ride, taking you from Harrison Hot Springs to the Agassiz farmlands as you bike by farms, corn fields, hazelnut orchards, cows, sheep, and, even, the odd donkey.

Harrison Hot Springs is far enough away to feel away from it all,
but only a scenic 1.5-hour drive from Vancouver.
Love the journey as much as the visit.
