Vancouver Food Tour: Salt Spring Island Food Tour

Explore BC’s most prized Gulf Island, renown for its spectacular natural scenery, organic wineries and farms, vibrant art culture, and outdoor adventures. On this leisurely tour, indulge in Salt Spring Island’s famed wines, cheeses, mussels, oysters, and much more.

Guests can either meet the guides on the Island, or meet Melody at the docks in Downtown, Vancouver. A float plane will take guests on a picturesque ride and arrive at Salt Spring within half an hour.

Upon gathering the group and dropping off our bags, we’re off to our first delectable destination! We first take a tour of the famed Salt Spring Island Cheese farm, followed by a trip to an artisan baker better known as “The Bread Lady”. Saturday guests are treated to an extra detour to the eclectic Farmer’s Market.

Next, we cruise to Salt Spring’s only organic winery for a tour and a guided wine tasting. Upon deciding your favourite wine, let’s take several carafes onto the patio that over looks the winery. Guests are invited dive into their chef-prepared picnic baskets, filled with organic and local fare.

After the picnic with wine-pairings, we head down to a unique organic farm that supplies the attached restaurant. The farmer shares his strategic techniques to yield an array of produce to feed the entire establishment. We then experience the farmed goods, along with renowned Salt Spring Island Mussels on the airy restaurant patio.

A Salt Spring Island tour is not complete until guests savour freshly shucked Salt Spring oysters while overlooking the waters, and that’s exactly what we’ll do. Our tour wraps up with some squeezing of lemon, grating of fresh horseradish, and a whole lot of slurping.

As we say our farewells, the guides will help guests arrange transportation or accommodations.
