Tulips of the Valley, and the Mandarin Garden Buffet Lunch, Chilliwack River Honey

Tulips of the Valley is the original tulip festival that takes place over a 3-5-week period, usually in April, sometimes into May, depending on the weather. Actual length depends on temperatures, high temperatures pushes the tulips through faster. Now in its twelfth year, the festival has grown from a couple of hundred visitors per season, to nearly 30,000, and we’ve relocated to charming Chilliwack, to better showcase the talents of the tulip. After the festival we will be having lunch at the Mandarin Buffet Restaurant. Before we head home, we will visit the Chilliwack River Honey store. Their honey is 100% natural, unpasteurized and packaged by hand. The honey contains all the good things that the bees get from the flower.

BC Forest Discovery Centre and the Kinsol Trestle

The BC Forest Discovery Centre is a 100-acre, open air museum with an operational railway in Duncan, British Columbia. The Centre features forest and marsh trails with excellent bird watching opportunities. We will be getting a camp life tour. You will step back in time when you visit the Heritage logging camp. With a focus on community, discover what camp life was like in the early to mid 20th century. See how early loggers lived and worked and how logging camps created the infrastructure necessary to build communities. These actual bunkhouses used on Vancouver Island were generously donated to us by forestry companies. Following the Discovery Centre we will have lunch (not included) and then make our way to the Kinsol Trestle. The Historic Kinsol Trestle is open to the public for cyclists, hikers and equestrians to experience the full Cowichan Valley Trail in the Cowichan Region. The Kinsol Trestle is one of eight trestles along the Cowichan Valley Trail route and by far the largest and most spectacular. The Kinsol Trestle is one of the tallest free-standing and most spectacular timber rail trestle structures in the world. At 187 metres in length and standing 44 metres above the salmon bearing Koksilah River, the Kinsol is an incredible structure.
