Vernon, British Columbia

View British Columbia, Canada on divatmotoros's travel map.

After 14 months spent with the kids 24 hours a day we much needed a break. Luckily the grandparents were willing to visit us in Mexico again and agreed to watch for the kids for a week! So we started planning a getaway and we picked our favourite location in Canada: British Columbia and more specifically Vernon.

The trip was relatively easy: a two hour bus ride from Puebla to Mexico City, a direct flight to Vancouver and then a scenic drive to Vernon (about 5 hours). We spent a day in Vancouver after arriving and then headed off to Vernon.


In Vernon we visited the Okanagan Lake and enjoyed hiking in the surrounding hills with nice views. Also visited Kelowna.


We also drove to explore some nature nearby at Revelstoke, where we have hiked to two waterfalls. First we checked Moses Falls a bit North of town.


Then after a "classic" Tim Horton's lunch with donuts and a "double-double with an espresso shot" we went to Begbie Falls a bit South of town. The falls were about 2,5 kms from the parking spot we stopped but it was a beautiful autumn walk across the forest, some remote camping spots and the huge shoal of fish at the bottom of the falls was really spectacular.


After the beautiful excursions we got a great farewell with a full rainbow seen from the car and a beautiful sunset from the airplane. Will return for sure to this beautiful and friendly corner of Canada.
