Self-Guided Tours

How it Works

Our Sunshine Coast tours are self-guided, meaning you travel in your own vehicle and we provide a planned itinerary based on your interests.

We arrange all the logistics, including booking your accommodation and day-tours, and provide a detailed itinerary with optional stops and activities for you to explore at your own pace.

The weather on the Sunshine Coast is moderate year-round, with July and August the warmest months. May/June and Sept/Oct are generally quieter months for travel in BC.

Pick Your Dates

Tours are available from May to October, based on availability. Choose a few dates that work best for you, and reach out to us with your preferences.

Choose Your Level of Luxury

We offer two itineraries as a starting point which feature different activity levels and style of accommodation. Sunshine Coast Explorer includes a B&B and resort stays, and Unwind & Dine is based at a luxury waterfront guesthouse.

Talk to Our Team

Give us a call (778-400-5299) or reach out via our enquiry form and we will be in touch in 1-2 days. We’ll find out more about your interests and goals for the trip, confirm your preferred dates with our availability, and finalize all the logistics from there.

Depart on Your Adventure

The fun begins now. We provide a detailed itinerary and booking confirmations, so you can set off on your trip with ease. Our team is available for remote support for the duration of your tour as needed.
