A short 20-minute drive from Downtown Kelowna and you will find yourself in Peachland. A great place to spend the day with friends and family as you’ll find plenty to do. Me personally, my plans for this week are to pack up my dogs and head out with friends to taste wines at Fitzpatrick Vineyards and walk along the kilometers of path along the water with a stop for an iced latte and some of Bliss Bakery’s tasty gluten-free baking; say hello if you see me out there.

1. Zipzone Adventure Park

Get ready for an adrenaline rush as you fly between the trees and Canada’s highest freestyle zip lines. Six of the highest, longest, fastest, epic-est zip lines in Canada, crisscrossing the breathtaking Deep Creek Gorge with incredible views and maximum exhilaration.


2. Fitzpatrick’s Family Vineyards

Enjoy the view as you sample a selection of traditional method sparkling, white and rose wines. Their outdoor bistro has a number of tasty options for you to enjoy lunch or dinner with your new favourite wines.


3. Okanagan ATV Tours

From wonderfully scenic to downright dirty, they offer every level of ATV enjoyment. So if you want great trails, scenery and fun, Okanagan ATV will give you the adventure you are looking for.


4. Bliss Bakery & Bistro
