The most perfect fall getaway is only 1.5 hrs from Vancouver
When the months get cooler, more Netflix gets binged, summer diets go out the window, and often times, people forget to vacation. The truth is, people heading back to school or work provides the perfect window of opportunity for an out-of-city escape.
That’s where ultra-gorgeous fall destinations come in handy. Living in Vancouver, we’re blessed to have one of the prettiest autumn spots in all of Canada just next door. Harrison Hot Springs sits just 1.5 hours outside Vancouver and is the definition of a laid-back community.
Oh, Harrison Hot Springs also offers up some incredible deals for people looking for the perfect fall getaway. Interested? We thought you might be. Let’s take a little look at everything Harrison Hot Springs has to offer:
Naturally, this will be at the top of your Harrison HOT SPRINGS ‘things-to-do’ list. Keep this in mind for the perfect end to every hike, bike, paddle, or activity day. Heck, keep it in mind as the activity you plan your day around. The public hot springs pool is open daily!
You’re on the lake, so you better take advantage of it! You can kayak and canoe along the gorgeous water and snap some foggy morning pics that will absolutely spice up your Insta-feed. Hop onto a covered boat tour to see the water in a whole new way. Shoreline Tours offer a leisurely 2.5 hr sail featuring either a waterfall or river cruise. Another option is Harrison Eco Tours, specializing in wildlife and jet boat tours.
