M People come to Penticton for many reasons, some come to enjoy the sunshine and beaches while others for the many events PENTICTON and festivals happening throughout the year. PENTICTON Water sports are a given with AIRPORT vast beaches at both, north and south ends of town and a river channel connecting the two lakes. If you’re looking for just a little relaxation, what better way SKAHA LAKE than to spread your beach towel on Okanagan or Skaha beach and watch the world go by or take a leisurely float down the channel while soaking up some Okanagan sunshine, tube rentals available at the North end of the Channel. Looking for adventure? In the valley there is a wide range of biking and hiking trails from beginner to expert and it’s just a 30 minute drive to Apex Mountain Ski Resort for a fun filled day on the slopes, also open in the summer months for downhill cycling and hiking with spectacular panoramic views. If golf is your thing, there are plenty of courses for the beginner or pro golfer to try. Take the kids to LocoLanding Adventure Park for a round of mini golf, Go-Karting or Bumper Boats. Try indoor rock climbing at Hoodoo Adventures, they also rent kayaks for more outdoor fun. To get away from it all, stay at the Historical Chute Lake Lodge on the KVR Trail in the hills just north of Naramata. Is there a wine tour on your agenda? Award winning wines await the connoisseur at a multitude of wineries in the area. There are quite a number of fantastic distilleries in the Okanagan that turn the local fruit into wonderful spirits and liqueurs, we recommend Maple Leaf Spirits on the Naramata Bench. How about fresh picked fruit? Take a short drive to a fruit stand at one of the many orchards nearby to sample the freshest fruit you’ve ever tasted. Looking for just the right place to settle or retire? Penticton is well known for being just that place. These are just a few of the fun and exciting things to see and do in and around Penticton. We hope you enjoy your stay here in Penticton.

Princeton The town of Princeton is PRINCETON beautifully nestled in the foothills of the Cascade 40 Y Mountains, in the heart of HW the Similkameen Valley and at the junction of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers. The mountains, valleys and hundreds of miles of back country roads make it a natural setting for outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, wildlife photography, rock hounding, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Either of the two rivers are a natural choice for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, or even gold panning. The 49 lakes in the area make Princeton a prime fishing destination in all four seasons, yes ice fishing too. Embark on your hike or bicycle exploration of the Trans Canada Trail right in Princeton. To the West follow the Tulameen River through tunnels and over bridges to the communities of Coalmont, Tulameen, and Brookmere. To the North East, the higher elevation takes you through grasslands, forests and along lakes. Enjoy the spectacular views as you make your way to Osprey Lake and on to Summerland.
