Although it’s the winter season, there are still plenty of activities you can do to get the most out of your Kelowna sightseeing trip. You won’t find any abominable snowmen (although if you do, let us know and also safely snap a selfie with him if you can), but there are a ton of outdoor activities you can find around the Okanagan.
We’ve compiled some of the best ones below for you to enjoy and experience.
Hike Along the Myra Canyon Trestles
Although the many kilometres of old rail lines have been removed, the trails remain and continue to be maintained along the Myra Canyon Trestles. Hike along or even snowshoe along the old paths and admire the expansive views along the way.
Snowshoe Along the Many Trails Around the Okanagan
The Myra Canyon Trestles are certainly one option for snowshoeing, but there are still a ton of additional trails in the Okanagan. Rose Valley is one of the most popular destinations for hiking in the winter as are Mount Boucherie and Knox Mountain.
No matter where you choose to hike there are plenty of incredible views you can enjoy.
Go Cross-Country Skiing
The Telemark Nordic Club is a staple winter activity for many people in the Okanagan, and with good reason. There are groomed cross-country skiing runs, a plethora of hiking trails, and gorgeous scenery to take in. Surrounded by streams, wetlands, forests, and grasslands, you’re sure to see some wildlife in your journey as well.
Dog-Sledding at Big White
You heard us, you can go full Canadian and actually get dog-sledding tours at Big White. Not only will you get to know the dogs (which is worth the time and money anyway, let’s be honest) you’ll get one of the most unique experiences on your Kelowna sightseeing tour. If this was on your bucket list, why not close out 2020 by crossing it off?
Explore the Taste of the Many Craft Breweries
There’s nothing quite like a good cold brew, and Kelowna has those aplenty. In fact, there are over 10 places that all have their own take on beer and other beverages. You’ll find plenty of unique flavours like those from BNA in downtown Kelowna (which has its own bowling alley on the second floor), Red Bird Brewing, Rustic Reel Brewing Company, Copper Brewing Company, and CRAFT Beer Market.
