Summer is an amazing time in BC with lots of fun to enjoy. A few weeks ago, the heatwave did get in our way, making it unpleasant for outdoor activities. Now that it’s gone, the chilling spirit of summer is calling all of us to go outdoor again. We can all go back to our normal exercises such as jogging, biking, trailing, hiking. Feel free to take a look back at CISM’s article about the 3 most achievable trails in Metro Vancouver. For those of you who prefer calmness, there are more than enough options for you to choose from. In this article, CISM will invite you to explore U-pick fruit farms and flower gardens around Metro Vancouver.
Less than a movie, and it’s outside in the fresh air with more flowers than people. Tickets range from $6.25 – $8.50 for the pre-bloom season, and $8.50 – $12.50 for the rest of the lavender bloom season.

Picking your berries is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors, bond with friends and family, or even relax.
You will need to check-in at the white U-pick booth each time you visit the farm to make sure that you are directed to the appropriate fields for picking.
