Penticton, BC

The City of Penticton, BC, is the perfect sun, sand and surf destination.

Following the high clay bluffs south along Highway 97 from Kelowna, you enter Penticton. With Okanagan Lake to the north and Skaha Lake to the south, this city is a leisure and recreation mecca.

Choose from houseboating, sailing,windsurfing, waterskiing, power boating or a lazy float down the Okanagan River Channel. Get your gear and challenge yourself on the Skaha Bluffs - one of the best rock climbing pitches in the world. Drive off to one of the 250 fishing lakes within 30 minutes of Penticton city centre.

Maybe a tour through one of the many nearby Okanagan wineries, sampling local orchard produce or browsing through the local craft shops, museum and galleries is more to your liking. Winter brings fun at Apex Mountain Resort, a nearby ski area with both alpine and nordic skiing, snowboarding, snow showing, ice fishing and sleigh rides.
