Rockwood’s’ Best of BC Cuisine™ is a key differentiator created by our founder, Manfred Scholermann,  a former Olympic Culinary Team member and fine dining Executive Chef, and so one of Rockwood key brand pillars is “unique culinary-infused excursions” creating “memories for all our guests senses”, and they are available for all excursions as an optional enhancement, as well as culinary experiences including evening dining experiences.

 Culinary Enhancements: For Culinary enhancements on our excursions we typically require at least a 5-hour excursion; 4 hours excursions can add an additional hour if desiring a culinary enhancement. Evening culinary programs are based on min 3 hrs.
