If you're into hidden gem breweries and easy outdoor adventures then this is the trip for you! We've also sprinkled in a few bakeries to satisfy your sweet tooth, quirky shops and some local history throughout the day.

Trip Highlights

  • A peaceful outdoor art experience
  • Multiple unique breweries
  • Snap photos of a local waterfall
  • Bakeries & cafes for sweet treats


This trip is best done between Wednesday - Saturday, from May - October.


  • Active families
  • Couples
  • Foodies
  • Craft beer lovers



We’ve recommended two outdoor adventures to choose from for your first stop, but first... coffee! Drive time to the second stop is 10 minutes.


A seasonal garden with a few surprises, photo-worthy heritage moments or an early afternoon brew await. Drive time to your third stop is 15 minutes.


Plants, pints and pastries - oh my! These little local eateries are serving up tasty bites or pop over to a hidden gem garden centre. Drive time to the fourth stop is 15-20 minutes.


Wander through the woods for a peaceful last stroll (or snowshoe is the timing is right) before you try a beer named after the owner's loving pup!
