Thompson Okanagan


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 descent.

Or head a few minutes further out of the city for more cross-country trail networks, singletrack, all-mountain, and downhill action. In Kelowna and the surrounding 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 excursion, or a cider tasting? Kelowna’s got you dialed in there too.
