FAQ

Does it include visiting Kelowna?

If you are staying in the Okanagan, especially the most popular areas of Kelowna and Penticton, then you will use the Okanagan Connector, Highway 97C to travel between the tour route and Kelowna. This route joins our tour at Merritt.  You will still hear 80% of the tour even if you are staying in the Okanagan.

Are there any toll roads?

The Coquihalla Highway #5 between Hope and Kamloops used to be a toll road.  The tolls were removed many years ago now, so there is no fee to drive on this fast route.

Does this tour go through Whistler?

No. Whistler is located on Hwy 99. If driving through Whistler and Cache Creek, tour commentary is available for the section between Vancouver and Whistler on the tour with that same name.

Can I drive through the Fraser Canyon?

Fraser Canyon and Hells Gate are located on the “old” Hwy 1 section between Hope and Cache Creek.  While that is a scenic drive, it is not a part of this tour. We follow the Coquihalla Hwy 5 between Hope and Kamloops as most visitors want to travel through this section the fastest way.
