Whether you are staying in the city, visiting a neighbouring ski resort, or making the short drive in for a day trip, Kelowna offers winter excursions where experiencing the outdoors balances indulgent culinary offerings.
From backcountry skiing to a network of well-groomed snowshoe and hiking trails, there are options for all skill levels and abilities to explore. For those wishing to mix fitness with pleasure, options include a Snow E-Bike course at MeadowVista Winery followed by s’Mores, ‘Slip and Sip’ where you can snowshoe and fondue at The View Winery, or a leisurely guided hike through frosted vineyards followed by fireside tastings at Grizzli Winery.
After a day of exploring the outdoors, dive into a cooking class hosted by Lakehouse Kitchens Cooking School, The Okanagan Table or Mission Hill Winery. Or cozy up to a classic movie at Bernie’s Supper Club, a restaurant and cinema rolled into one, where food and cocktails get delivered to your seat. You can make it an extra special date night and dine in a Bubble Dome at OAK & CRU beside nighttime views of Okanagan Lake, or make it a casual stop and visit one of the many heated brewery patios in Kelowna’s North End.
The combination of exploring the scenic outdoors while indulging in farm-to-table restaurants, award-winning wine, and craft beverages all in one day, makes Kelowna a unique hub for a well-rounded vacation in the mild Okanagan winter.
