Sip into something comfortable
Ooh la la! Expand your wine horizons with tastings at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, one of the finest organic vineyards in Kelowna’s Okanagan Valley. Partake in the Signature Experience which includes a tour of Summerhill’s unique geometric pyramid wine cellar. Followed by a tasting of their award-winning wines alongside a delicious farm-to-table meal in the Summerhill Organic Bistro. Bon appetit!
Taste your way around Kelowna
Choose to winery-hop on a Naramata Bench Wine Tour. This area got its name from the landscape with the wineries sitting above the sand cliffs that provide an optimal place for the vines. Your knowledgeable local guide will show you the way, combined with the history and stories behind the area and a gourmet picnic lunch from the Bench Market.
Rollin’ along a railroad
Put your pedal to the metal on your e-bike at the Kettle Valley Railway trail, taking you through the dramatic walls of Myra Canyon, tunnels and across trestle bridges. This is a leisurely excursion so you’ll only have your breath taken away by the spectacular scenery! Don’t forget a picnic lunch along the way to keep the wheels turning!
Feel the wind beneath your wings
Hop aboard the famous Peak-to-Peak gondola which takes you 4.4 kilometres in just 11 minutes! Soar high above the valley with panoramic views of mountain peaks, lakes and glaciers below you. You can also spot Whistler Village and the iconic Blackcomb Mountains on the way. Once at the summit, enjoy some leisure time. Explore one of the hiking trails or simply admire the views at the café – the choice is yours!
Get up close and personal on the Great Whistler Walking Tour
As the name suggests, this walking tour will show you what makes Whistler so great. Your local guide creates the perfect mix of culture, history and nature throughout, pointing out their local favourites that you may want to visit later on.
Branch out on Blackcomb Mountain
Take to the trees and discover some of Blackcomb Mountain’s forest on a TreeTrek Canopy Walk. This YourChoice excursion is a real treat for the nature-lovers, as your guide shares fascinating insights into the local environment as you cross suspension bridges and boardwalks.
