Bring it on, then drink it up!
In Kelowna, the Okanagan Valley’s largest city, you’ll find alpine, agriculture, and semi-arid landscape surrounding a lakeside city with an amazing foodie scene, wineries, breweries, awesome entertainment, and a soulful urban vibe.
In as little as 5 minutes from downtown, you can ride 20 minutes up Knox Mountain trails to conquer a network of cross-country tracks including berms and jump lines for a heart-pounding fast paced decent. Or head a few minutes further out of the city for more cross-country trail networks, and some single track, all-mountain, and downhill action. In Kelowna and area it’s all about variety, and you can easily check out more than one trail network in a day.
Want to add a scenic long-distance road ride to your trip? How about an easy, all-family cruise, or a fun-packed and entertaining wine tour, craft beer flight excursions, or cider tastings? Kelowna’s got you dialed in there too. There are kid-friendly linear networks, and scenic road rides along Okanagan Lake. Ride through acres of orchards and vineyards and then stop by a tasting bar to help you conquer your built-up thirst.
Any time, any day, any season, Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley offer a world of things to do. Your options are endless, and there’s something for everyone.
