Golfing – Enjoy golfing for all ages on the putting greens or on the course. Book golfing tours through some of the local hotels or online booking companies. Ask for a recommendation of courses that meet your interests such as Kelowna Gold and Country Club, Sunset Ranch, Kelowna Springs, Gallagher’s or Harvest Gold Course. Wine Tours– There are over 30 wineries and growing in and around the area, Book a Wine Tour or Caravan on your own. I recommend Summerhill Winery, Cedar Creek Winery, St Hubertus, House of Rose, Mission Hill and some of the small family wine shops. This is a fun day to share with friends and taste some of Okanagan’s greatest vintages in white, red or sparkling. Okanagan Lake – Something for everyone starting with the warm sandy beaches. Try renting a sail boat or a paddle board both are great exercise and allow you to enjoy the scenic views and fresh air. Or if you are a little more adventurous try wakeboarding, tubing or jet skiing. For swimmers there are a couple of long distance swims in the summer such as The Across the Lake Swim from West Kelowna over to City Park and then there is the advanced Rattle Snake Swim from Rattle Snake Island to Peachland. <iframe src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/cohNti8_SSo?rel=0&controls=0″ width=”560″ height=”315″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe> Biking– Everyday along the roads you will find enthusiastic bikers on road touring bikes or trail bikes traveling in singles or in packs climbing the hills and peddling past the orchards, vineyards and farms.
