Departing early afternoon, we enjoy the beautiful fall colors on our journey to Harrison Hot Springs. Travelling the Trans-Canada Hwy (Hwy 1) and the scenic Hwy 7 this stunning route takes us through magnificent vistas and rolling pasture land all with the constant presence of the legendary Fraser River. Before immersing ourselves in the tranquility of the resort we will visit The Farm House – a working family dairy farm that produces handmade artisan cheeses and specialties from the rich fresh milk of the farm’s own dairy cows and goats. After a day of travel and exploring, the hot pools at Harrison Hot Springs Resort will be a welcome relief. Check in for your two-night stay, then join the group for an evening of dining and dancing in the renowned Copper Room. (D)

Begin the day by savouring Harrison’s legendary breakfast buffet before we begin the journey home over the Trans Canada Hwy. This scenic route developed in the 1860s to get miners to the Cariboo gold fields, travels the Trans-Canada as it squeezes against the walls of the Fraser River canyon between Hope and Cache Creek, passing through several towns, a few tunnels and several great views along the way. Lunch is at Horstings Farm Market where fresh bread and homemade pies are prepared daily, and shelves are overflowing with the fall’s bounty of fruits and vegetables. Continuing through the Thompson River Valley and into the Okanagan arriving home late this afternoon with great memories of a Thanksgiving getaway. (B, L)
