The Okanagan Valley is a hot spot for golfing enthusiasts, with Kelowna and Vernon offering some of the most spectacular courses in North America.  At Predator Ridge, you can play 9 or 18 holes in the morning, have lunch in one of the many restaurants, and have a post game massage in the "Sparkling Hill" resort afterwards.

Approx cost: $$$$


Lake Kalamalka is one of the most pictureque in the Okanagan Valley, as the water is seen coloured a turquoise green on most sunny days in summer.  The boat trip will take 2 hours.

This is a new venture for the area.  If you love cider, try a visit to one of the recently opened cideries.

A casual 17km bike ride around Wood Lake, along old rail tracks, so no hills!  Bikes will be hired at the start.  Maybe a stop for drinks and something to eat.
