The Thompson Okanagan's endless sunny summer days allow wineries, markets, gardens, farms and orchards to flourish – it's also ideal for waterslides and amusement parks.

Interspered among the vineyards, lakes and fields are museums and historic sites that highlight Aboriginal culture, railways, pioneer farms and more.

Visit a winery on a wine tour or learn about the desert and Aboriginal culture at the Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre. Pick up fresh fruit and veggies at a roadside stand or stop by Historic O'Keefe Ranch for a taste of history. The Kettle Valley Steam Railway is a fun way to take in the scenery and live entertainment at the same time.

Kelowna Mountain Vineyards & Bridges - Kelowna

5755 Gillard Forestry Rd
Kelowna, British Columbia
V1W 4K5
Toll-free
Phone250-300-3456

In 2003, a fire devastated the entire south slopes, turning its once beautiful luscious green landscape to black. Our family purchased the property with a vision to revitalize it and turn it into an amenity-based park.

Mark's vision has evolved now we have constructed a spectacular cliff walk across a 100 foot waterfall, a chairlift and four bridges over vineyards, one of which we are thrilled to say is the longest in North America. The magnificent views, cliffs and rock faces that the fire has revealed is what make The Kelowna Mountain Bridges & Vineyards so breathtaking and unique.

It's a hidden gem, and once you're here you'll never want to leave. Free viewing area and parking.

Voted #1 Tourist Attraction by Okanagan Life Magazine (2013).
