Kettle Valley Railway: Cranking Out Adventure

Lake Retreats and Adventures

The easy grades and relaxed pace will allow you time to explore charming villages, area history, geology, and ecology as you bike along the famous bridges, trestles, and tunnels. Sample wine and enjoy lunch at a local vineyard en route to Penticton. Discover the area’s historic lodgings including rustic log cabins, heritage inns and B.C.’s oldest operating hotel in Beaverdell.
