Ways to spend a Winter Weekend in Kelowna
Kelowna may be well known as a summer destination – but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself in the winter as well! Kelowna is home to many hidden gem winter activities, creating the perfect winter day for locals and tourists alike. If you are tired of being stuck at home, here are some fun things you can try this weekend.
On the Trails
Kelowna is home to many beautiful hiking trails which deserve to be enjoyed year round! Here are a few places to check out during the winter months.
A short 20 minute drive from Kelowna is the Myra Canyon Park. This Park has 155 km of multi use trails giving you a lot of variety for hiking and snowshoeing!
Located in West Kelowna, this is a great place to view the beautiful summer waterfalls as they turn into ice torrents in the winter. This 2.1 km loop can be slippery though, so make sure to wear proper footwear!
This park right near downtown Kelowna can be hiked year round! Paul’s Tomb can be enjoyed in regular hiking boots, but other trails may require shoe grips so make sure you’re prepared! You can also drive to the top to check out the view.
Another fun thing to do on the trails this winter is horseback riding! Go for a ride on horseback and experience a winter afternoon in a whole new way! We even have horseback experiences for Children too 🙂
If you’re wanting some guaranteed snowshoeing then head to one of these three nearby areas with their dedicated trails.
