Go Karting and Coombs Trip

Trip Information

Do we have an adrenaline-infused fun-packed weekend prepared for you!
This June 3rd, come join us as we will be heading a half hour north of Nanaimo to enjoy our own version of fast and furious as we will head off go-karting! There are 3 races included in the trip so you get plenty of chances to improve your racing skills. ;)

After racing, we will visit the famous "Goats on the Roof" Market, in the small town of Coombs. There will be time to explore this unique market, which features food and items from around the world.
