EXPERIENCE THE UNIQUE TASTE OF SALT SPRING ISLAND’S WILD APPLES Making cider on Salt Spring using apples that are literally rooted in the islands history is such a natural continuum of island life. Shaking fruit from these old gnarled trees that tell us stories of the islands history and then sharing that story in each bottle- that’s what they do at the Salt Spring Wild Cider.

Walks & hikes

Located very close by, this is our daily walk and we highly recommend it. Go left at our driveway, then at the stop sign for the Trincomali road take a right. About 150 metres down the road, the path will be on your right. You can either return on the path or go via the road for your return. It is only 25 a 25 minute hike but its very sweet.
