YOUR ITINERARY

DAY 1

Vancouver to Kelowna

The Okanagan is calling! Leaving the city, we’re heading east through the Fraser Valley, stopping for an easy walk in a temperate rainforest to the base of Bridal Veil Falls. Then, after crossing the Coast Mountains and traversing the Pennask Summit, we’ll descend into the Okanagan Valley, Western Canada’s premier wine producing region. Lucky for us, we’ll enjoy an included winery tour and tasting on arrival! After checking into our accommodation in lakeside Kelowna, we’re off to a special dinner at Kekuli Café in Westbank, where you’ll get to try Indigenous cuisine.

 

Activity Inclusions: Winery tour and tasting

Meal inclusions: Indigenous cuisine dinner

DAY 2

Okanagan Snow Day 1

On the first of two free days in the Okanagan, we’ll make a day trip to SilverStar Mountain Resort in the Monashee Mountains to experience the ‘champagne powder’ first-hand. With a mellow frontside of easy going ski runs and a hairy backside of more difficult terrain, some locals affectionately call this place ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ because of its dual personalities! Not a skier or snowboarder? No worries. Other activity options include skating, tubing, snowshoeing, fat tire biking, snowmobiling and nordic skiing, or just hangout in the colourful village with a hot chocolate. After a full day, it’s back to Kelowna and perhaps a night on the town in this university city!

DAY 3

Okanagan Snow Day 2

Another free day today, and with two other mountains in range, we could visit Big White Ski Resort or Apex Mountain Resort. Either way, it’s another full day in the Okanagan snow with multiple activity options available! Or choose to stay in Kelowna, explore the waterfront and shops downtown, or even take another winery tour. Your choice, but if you’re not stomping the snow, we recommend the (delicious beverage that comes from) stomped grapes!

DAY 4

Kelowna to Vancouver

On our final day, we’ll travel the Coquihalla Highway back to the coast. But first, we’ll stop in the town of Hope, the “Chainsaw Carving Capital” to admire some of the 80 plus chainsaw carvings on display in the town centre. Note to any old school movie fans; Hope is where Rambo: First Blood was filmed. Please contain your excitement! Then it’s on to Vancouver for hugs, tears and final goodbyes as your Western Canada snow-fari adventure comes to a close!

ACTIVITIES

There are lots of winter adventure activity options you can try on the Snowgopogo tour to help maximize your experience! Go skiing/snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and more. If you’re looking for something a little less active, try tubing, ice skating  or take another winery tour (there’s already one included!)

The following optional activities are available on this tour:
