This giveaway is SO fun and is going to make the perfect getaway for our lucky winner and their plus one!! This Gift of Travel valued at $1850 gives you the opportunity to experience some of the BEST that Osoyoos, BC has to offer!!! If you’re not familiar with Osoyoos, welcome to Canada’s desert. This is the valley of stunning beauty with unlimited vistas awaiting you. But, there’s more to Osoyoos than just bright skies and wineries set against gentle sloping hills according to Destination Osoyoos. While we embrace and proudly showcase our vintner industry, we also have sophisticated resorts, championship golf courses, the nation’s warmest lake and a wide range of cultural, intellectual and artistic experiences.
The friendly and intimate resort town, rich in a unique culture and colourful desert history, is also a notable centre for business meetings, conferences, weddings, weekend escapes and recreation. And there’s a reason for that. Osoyoos does have it all – golf, spas, beaches, wineries, orchards, culinary delights, mountains, wildlife watching, First Nations culture and eco-desert experiences are yours to enjoy.
Osoyoos is also a perfect place to getaway and relax and the best part is, it’s an amazing place to experience in EVERY season!! The lucky winner is seriously going to get the VIP treatment while you’re here… not only will you be staying here in Osoyoos for TWO nights but you’re going to do some pretty cool things while you’re here too! Let me lay out ALL of the details for you below!!
You will STAY at one of our all time FAVOURITE Resorts, Spirit Ridge for TWO NIGHTS in their ONE BEDROOM CONDO!!! If you’re not familiar, Spirit Ridge is a migratory destination and home of the Osoyoos Indian Band, the sacred land of Spirit Ridge has provided both physical and spiritual bounty for thousands of years. A breathtaking destination in Canada’s only desert, guests now travel here seeking an escape from the rigors of contemporary life. Hike along plentiful trails, wander through the award-winning Nk’Mip Cellars vineyard, golf, stargaze, or simply close your eyes and breathe in the tranquilizing fragrance of desert sage. Spirit Ridge offers the luxury to disconnect and reconnect to what you value most. With all senses engaged, amenities thoughtfully prepared, and an abundance of things to experience, discover something extraordinary. For whatever you wish to find here, you will most certainly leave having found something most important – yourself. You may leave Spirit Ridge, but Spirit Ridge will never leave you.
Satisfy your appetite with The Chef’s Dinner for TWO at their signature restaurant, The Bear, Fish, Root & Berry, a restaurant where you can enjoy drinks at the bar, take in the garden view, or dine alfresco. Unwind at the end of the day with a drink at the beach bar or the poolside bar. Cooked-to-order breakfasts are available daily from 8 AM to 10:30 AM for a fee. We had dinner at Spirit Ridge Resort’s brand-new restaurant ‘The Bear, the Fish, the Root, & the Berry’. Their menu is built around Indigenous and First Nations traditions that have been passed down through generations which makes it a really meaningful experience. The food is vibrant and exciting, and the service is no different. You can really feel that each and every detail is attended to with so much care.
Nk’Mip Cellars is the first Indigenous-owned and-operated winery in North America and you will be able to experience this first hand with a Complimentary Wine Tasting for TWO.
Explore their heritage and their commitment to making quality VQA wines by enjoying a selection of wines from our Winemaker’s Series and our premium Qwam Qwmt (which translates to “achieving excellence”) reserve.
The distinctive wineshop is open for your enjoyment daily. Take your time and browse some of their unique selection of local Indigenous artisan merchandise and wine-and food-related products.
Chase away the February blues with The Barber of Seville, a feast of frivolous fun. Enjoy Figaro’s mischievous escapades as he assists Count Almaviva in prising the beautiful Rosina away from her lecherous guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Rossini’s comic masterpiece fizzes with memorable melodies in an entertaining production that proves that the road to true love is paved with theft, lies, bribery, brawling—and wicked comedy.
*The winners will be able to pick up their tickets the night of February 13th or 20th at the VIP table at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Dates are chosen by the winner!
