Vad du kommer att göra

Your utterly unique Okanagan Valley day adventure – float, hikes, sip and swim! Float the Channel in a life vest; Beacon Hike with fabulous eastwards lake views; delicious deli lunch, hike the iconic KVR Trail visiting several great wineries and cool off at Three Mile Beach.

Our first adventure; on Penticton’s River Channel. Not the traditional “floaties” but we float the swifter upper 2km’s in life vests. Nobody else does this. A nice walk back along the channel to tidy up.
Next, a 3km return hike higher up on Penticton's West Bench, for fabulous views overlooking the lake, city and valley to the east and south.
Now you'll appreciate a great lunch at a local specialty diners.
Then shuttle to our hike through the silt cliffs to the iconic KVR (Kettle Valley Railway) Trail. Always with spectacular views of the Lake on our 5 km hike we pass through vineyards, orchards and over historic McCulloch Trestle Bridge.
Sidestep to the one of the several boutique wineries on the famous Naramata Bench for a glass of red or white. Finishing the trail we shuttle to isolated Three Mile Beach for a refreshing dip in Okanagan Lake’s cool waters.
An unforgettable day’s finale with wine and cheese at Howling Bluff Winery.
Depending on how we are for time a quick jaunt up Munson Mountain lookout for spectacular westward views over the lake and valley.

AWESOME, ACTIVE & UNFORGETTABLE DAY

If there is one tour you do in the summerland, penticton area THIS IS THE TOUR! Tim was a true Aussie gentleman, and catered to our every need. Great laughs a long the way, was like having a friend to chat along the way. An experienced hiker, even us, as beginners, had the best time! Beautiful choice of winery’s, the float was so fun, and of course the final swim at the beach, you will be ready for it! This was a surprise gift from my love, and it never failed .. stunning day, I’m still smiling, and most likely in bed early! Do this tour, no regrets.. and take the time to enjoy all the views! Thanks again Tim, you are truly amazing!

Our adventure with Tim was awesome, we got an opportunity to visit local treasures in Penticton and enjoy the full experience because we did not have to worry about anything. It was all looked after by Tim. We avoided the tourist traps and got an excellent flavour of the Okanagan area in one day - this included a float, some history, a hike, wine anf cheese, meals and a little unexpected adventure. Thanks Tim - cant wait for the next adventure!!!
