Salt Spring Island has everything that makes me feel as though I live closer to nature and the basics of life. Not only is the landscape amazing – including Mount Maxwell and beautiful seashores – but it also has farms, studios, bakeries, wineries, breweries…everything. You can always find fresh, good-quality food and wine. However, what I like most is that while I’m there it feels as if life has a different rhythm. Everything seems to slow down and I can actually feel the space and time.

Recommendations from Elena
- There aren’t a lot of restaurants on the island, but who needs restaurants when you can have fresh food from the farm and wine from the winery?
- Salt Spring Vineyards – This is a favourite of mine, especially if you like port wine. Their blackberry dessert wine is the best!
- Ruckle Provincial Park – Beautiful trails, quiet inlets and stunning views – a must!
