With so many things to do in Kelowna at this time of year it is hard to pick just a few, but here are five things you can do in Kelowna... right now.
With dozens of golf courses in the Kelowna area, beginner and expert golfers can find a spot for driving, chipping and putting the ball. You can book your tee-times online at golfkelowna.com
2. Wine Touring
June is a great time to check out all of the local wineries as most of the new release wines are ready for your enjoyment. Whether you join a tour group or do a self-guided tour, you can sip while taking in some of the best views in the valley.
3. Cycle around Kelowna
From paved boardwalks to natural parks, Kelowna has an extensive bicycle network. Cruiser bikers can enjoy 300km of bike lanes, while mountain bikers can check out the local forest terrain. Find a map of the local biking routes here.
4. Chasing Waterfalls
If exploring on two feet is more your style, there are several beautiful waterfalls in the area that visitors can hike to. Your four-legged friend may also be allowed to accompany you on the trek, but most of the trails require you to keep them on a leash. For a map of hiking trails click here.
5. Wake-free water activities
If you have your heart set on getting out on the lake, there are wake-free options. Kayaks and SUP are available for rent at Lakefront Sports Rentals and the Downtown Marina. Maeg’s BBQ Boats may also be your answer to getting out on the lake. These boats run on a 2.5 horsepower electric motor at a leisurely pace of 5km/h on the water – a slow and steady way to enjoy your next meal.
