Looking for a more cultural experience? The Fraser Valley is home to a number of festivals and events throughout the year. From the Abbotsford International Airshow to the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival, there’s always something happening in the Fraser Valley. And for those looking for a more hands-on experience, many artisanal shops and markets offer locally made gifts and souvenirs.

Finally, for those looking for a wilderness adventure, the Fraser Valley offers plenty of opportunities for hiking, camping, and exploring. The region is home to several mountain ranges, including the Coast and Cascade mountains, which offer stunning views and a range of hikes for all skill levels. With so many parks and trails to explore, visitors can easily spend a week or more in the Fraser Valley without running out of things to do.

The Fraser Valley is a diverse and exciting destination that offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely stroll along the river, a farm-to-table meal, or a challenging hike in the mountains, the Fraser Valley has it all.
