Oliver

— 1 night

Wine Capital of Canada

In tiny Oliver, practically every attraction appealing to tourists remains within walking distance of town center.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sun): relax in the rural setting at Covert Farms Family Estate, then do a tasting at Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, and then learn about winemaking at Silver Sage Winery. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre, then examine the collection at Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad, then awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and finally learn about winemaking at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery.

To see where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Oliver tour itinerary website.

Toronto to Oliver is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, car, and bus.

Kelowna

— 6 nights

Orchard City

At the heart of British Columbia's wine country, Kelowna is at once both urban and rural, featuring a modern downtown encircled by picturesque hills carpeted with vineyards and orchards.
Venture out of the city with trips to Gray Monk Estate Winery (in Lake Country), MOCOJO Winery (in Naramata) and Penticton (The Book Shop, Wine Tours & Tastings, &more). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Myra Canyon Park, hike along Kettle Valley Steam Railway, let little ones run wild at Davison Orchards Country Village, and do a tasting at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read Kelowna trip itinerary maker site.

You can drive from Oliver to Kelowna in 1.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of taxi and bus. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Sun) to allow time for the flight back home.

British Columbia's wine country, Okanagan Valley benefits from a dry and sunny climate, which makes it a favorable place for both growing fruit and taking outdoorsy vacations. Scenic vineyards and photogenic hillside orchards aren't the only reason to take a trip to Okanagan Valley, as this area also boasts many golf courses, hiking trails, sandy beaches, and plenty of snow in the winter for those looking to indulge in some colder-weather sports. The area's largest city, Kelowna provides a good base for Okanagan Valley holidays, offering all the amenities of a big city without actually being one.
