Beaches & Swimming

Okanagan beaches were named the #2 "Best Beaches in Canada" in TripAdvisor's 2011 Readers Choice Awards.

The Okanagan Valley is the warmest and driest part of BC, with pockets of semi-arid desert as well as Canada's only true desert. It also contains an enormous number of lakes, most of which are warm and wonderful swimming destinations.

Beach and water sports of every description are played here and, with gorgeous lake, orchard and mountain views everywhere you look, picnicking is practically mandatory.

For family fun close to lots of conveniences and amenities, visit the city beaches in Kelowna, Penticton and Osoyoos. If you prefer to leave the city behind, opt for a provincial park such as Haynes Point or Shuswap Lake. The best time for sunning and swimming in this region is from June through September.

Zipity Doo Dah Adventures at The Wilderness Way Resort - Ashcroft

3109 Kirkland Ranch Rd
Ashcroft, British Columbia
V0K 1A0

With so much adventure, you'll want to stay! BC's newest adventure park offers extreme zip lining, with lines over 1400 ft., clocking speeds at over 42 km/hour. Race side by side on the last line, then take a leap of faith on the Quick Jump, a sensation of free falling while safely lowering you to the ground.

There is fun for the whole family. Send the kids to the inflatable park while you enjoy vistas, wildlife and birdwatching from our hiking trails.

Wrap up the evening with a sunset wildlife safari in our troop carrier. We'll send you off with an experienced guide and a bottle of wine and snacks.
