Traveller or tourist? What’s the difference? Travel is about more than going to a place just to check it off a bucket list, it’s about experiencing the local vibes, taking in the things that make a place unique, and really experiencing all the place has to offer. If that sounds like your idea of good time, then you might just be a traveller!
Here in Revelstoke we have a team of volunteers, primed and waiting to show you how to enjoy Revelstoke like a true traveller. Since May, Revelstoke has been part of Global Greeters, an international program designed to help travellers get the best of the places they visit through local insights and insider tips. Best of all? It’s totally free.
