This trip takes you into the rolling hills and turquoise lakes of the BC interior, but also includes mountain grandeur. The Okanagan is an award-winning wine region, and wine-tasting excursions have become very popular; our tour includes several wineries and play time on the beach. This tour is a little more laid-back but still gives opportunities for a variety of outdoor walks, tubing or cycling if so desired.
