Okanagan Valley: Canada's Wine Country
Whet your appetite and your interests in the Napa of the North
What better way to toast a day of hiking, biking and kayaking British Columbia's stunning grassland and mountain trails, meandering riverside pathways, turquoise lakes and hillside vineyards than with a glass of fine local wine? How about making the toast while soaking in an outdoor hot tub?
Welcome to your Okanagan Valley Canadian Wine Country adventure vacation, named one of the "World's 25 Best New Trips for 2007" by National Geographic Adventure Magazine
. The Okanagan Valley, while dubbed the "Napa of the North," is yet to be widely discovered. Nestled in the snow-capped Caribou, Monashee and Selkirk Mountains of south-central British Columbia and boasting the stunning Lake Okanagan, it is perhaps the finest grape growing region in the world.
Long, sunny days not only produce intensely flavored wines but set the perfect stage for your 5-day wine tasting/active adventure vacation. From the breathtaking scenery of the Kettle Valley Rail Path to the award-winning whites of Mission Hill winery, soak up the spectacular countryside and culinary delights of Canada's esteemed wine country.
