Pfft, real men do the Duffey Lake Rd (Hwy 99) all the way up to the end then loop down through Cache Creek or Spences Bridge :P The pavement is rubbish (frost heaves ) but it's ranked DH3 for a reason Our club have done the canyon (Hwy 1) one year; I keep rolling the windows down every time we hit these tunnels and go through them full-throttle.... Ended up using twice as much gas as everyone else :P

Well, I've shown you the 3 routes in your area, complete with Google Maps. Make a day trip out of them!

Yep, that's me. That's where I work. Oh yeah, the car is getting driven alright, it's too awesome not to drive it BTW if Ben Collins WAS The Stig, who IS The Stig? Hmm

I thought it was a bit long (1750km or around 1100mi) for "normal" people so I went myself :P Still, if anybody wants to go again sometime next year.... BTW, you have the right car, what's stopping you from taking a trip?

Great pictures!!!!
Yeah, but notice how all those pictures weren't taken in Vancouver We do have a pretty awesome backyard though. Though, if you like these drives, may I suggest Kelowna instead?

Fantastic post!

I have my son at UBC Okanagan and my daughter at UBC Vancouver, so these roads are now on my list. Last two trips we took the X5, but if there is an Indian summer during Canadian Thanksgiving, the M3 might get the call!

Thanks again!

This is a great thread!

If you get a chance, take the turn-off just east of Princeton and head north on 5A North, the Princeton-Kamloops highway. It goes directly north along Allison Lake and intersects the Okanagan Connector. It's a beautiful drive I found when I was just wandering around the highways in my new M5 in 2003. I'd got as far as Princeton and decided I wanted to head to Kelowna for the night, so took a shortcut to get to the Connector. Stayed in Kelowna overnight, watched the mountainsides burning along the east end of the lake, then left in the morning ahead of the really big fires.

Seems like an amazing trip! First time I've ever heard of a ferry for cars to cross a river, I guess I'm too use to taking bridges or something xD.
