For a unique adventure in Canada, and the opportunity to sample delicious cuisine, food tours are ideal. Visitors are introduced to a wide range of local cultural flavours and diverse tastes, as well as the production process and its history.
Located on a nature reserve in Cape Breton, this tour is certainly unique! Visitors stay at the on-site lodge, and are able to savour the delights of freshly self-picked food, such as Chanterelle mushrooms, apples, and Canada’s famous Maple syrup. The reserve itself is home to beautiful old forests, natural ponds, and diverse wildlife.
Toronto is home to a diverse cultural community, which is reflected in the amazing food available. Culinary food tours of Little India will introduce you to Indian customs, while sampling dosas, samosas, and kebabs.
Plants and Crabs
Guided food tours in British Columbia include foraging for edible treats in the forests, such as mushrooms and salmonberries. If you like crabs, then try the crabbing on the beach tour. You will even have the opportunity to prepare and cook your own freshly caught Dungeness crab!
Cheese and Cider
Sample cheese at the Carmelis Goat Cheese Artisan farm in Kelowna, and enjoy stunning views of Okanagan Lake. Take a ride on the back of a hay wagon, while being shown around the orchards at Kelowna Land and Orchard. Visitors are shown how cider is prepared, and have the opportunity to eat delicious apples and try the iced apple cider.
For something different, why not try a Food truck tour? Foods such as smoked wild salmon sandwiches, fiery Diablo cookies, Japanese hot dogs, and rice balls are on the menu! And that’s not all, your guide will introduce you to the truck owners and chefs, and you will be shown how various foods are prepared.
For the more adventurous, why not try Gourmet Kayaking? Visitors get to spend the weekend kayaking around the gulf islands, experiencing amazing sights and wildlife – including bald eagles and seals. Tasty dishes, such as Albacore Tuna Nicoise and Bourbon Mashmallows, will be served up by your guide.
