Transportation & Maps
Naramata is a village at the end of the road – or almost.
The main route in and out is Naramata Road, which connects with the city of Penticton, 16km/10mi south. Cyclists riding the Trans Canada Trail can also reach Naramata across the highlands from the east.
While the village of Naramata is compact and very pedestrian friendly, many of the outdoor recreational and cultural activities that draw visitors require car or bicycle travel.
Naramata offers no car rentals, but they are readily available in downtown Penticton and at the Penticton Regional Airport. Winter tires or chains are strongly recommended on mountain roads from October through April. Road conditions at higher elevations can be treacherous even when excellent in the valley. Four-wheel or all-wheel-drive vehicles are best suited for rugged backcountry travel.
