you start the journey here…
We start the tour at the Off The Eaten Track gift shop inside the historic Steamship Terminal Building along the Inner Harbour. Here we will sample some Nuts & Bolts, a savory party snack from a recipe that dates back to the 1950s. All tour guests get 10% off anything in our shop that carries locally made goodies. The tour then strolls along the beautiful harbour to the iconic Rogers’ Chocolates to sample some candy cane bark and then to Bon Macaron for some holiday-themed macrons.
eat, drink, and be merry…
After visiting the Festival of Trees inside the Bay Centre with a shopping stop at the Victoria Market Collective, the tour then stops at Crust Bakery for a spiced plum and frangipane tart. We then get decadent with a mini Raclette from L’apero Wine & Cheese Bistro. Raclette is a traditional Alpine dish that involves heating a wheel of cheese and scraping the melted cheese onto potatoes. Guests will have an opportunity to add a festive glass of wine for an additional cost. The tour ends with a drinking chocolate and truffles from Chocolate & Co. The tour also includes a few short stops at local shops for an opportunity to do some holiday shopping with an exclusive discount! Off The Eaten Track will donate $2 from every ticket sold to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
