If you have any questions for the Wicked Tours team, please feel free to get in touch.

In the meantime, let’s get started on our tips for how to spend three days in Kelowna wine country!



Dive into One of Canada’s Most Acclaimed Wine Country Regions

We could hardly not start with wine tours, could we? There are plenty of opportunities for action and adventure later in this list. But it’s essential to find time to appreciate the finer things in life at a gentle pace, especially when you’re on vacation. This is precisely what Wicked Tours offers!

We love guiding visitors through Kelowna’s unique boutique wineries, many of which are family-owned and operated. Everything is surrounded by incredible scenery, from rolling vineyards to scenic lake views. And you can even enjoy relaxed conversations with the winemakers too. Our half-day options include Twilight Tastings: Half-Day Kelowna Wine Tour, Discover Scenic Sip: Lakeside Wine Tour, and Wicked Wine Express: West Kelowna Wine Tours.

With even more full-day wine tour packages to choose from, we can guarantee you a fun, funky, and fascinating time!

Get into the Great Outdoors of Kelowna!

Now, about that action and adventure. Kelowna and the surrounding areas are packed with excellent opportunities for hiking and biking through spectacular landscapes.

Knox Mountain sits directly to the north of downtown Kelowna, so it’s an ideal place to hike at any time of day. However, morning and sunset hikes are especially rewarding. Knox Mountain’s summit stands 300 meters above Lake Okanagan so that you can enjoy awe-inspiring views across the water, the city, and the mountains beyond. And there are plenty more hiking opportunities in the areas surrounding Kelowna, including:

  • Pincushion Mountain Trail

  • Myra Canyon

  • Rose Valley Regional Park

  • Crawford (Canyon) Falls

  • Christie Falls

  • Fintry Falls

  • Bear Creek Falls

If you want a two-wheeled adventure while spending three days in Kelowna wine country, we recommend heading to Myra Canyon. The courses at Myra Canyon follow the route of the disused KVR (Kettle Valley Railway). This means you can ride over the 18 iconic trestle bridges and through two railway tunnels, all of which sits among beautiful steep-walled canyons. Some of these trails also welcome cyclists.



Don’t Forget Watersports and Activities on the Lake!

Do you want to make a splash on Lake Okanagan while you’re in town? The good news is you’ve got plenty of options to choose from.

You can find reliable classics like kayak, canoe, and SUP rentals alongside the newest addition to the watersport family — flyboarding! And with pedal boats, water skis, boat rentals, and much more, you can get out on the lake in any way that suits you.

Of course, most lake-based action takes place during the summer. If you’re visiting us in winter, check out our tips for the best winter activities in Kelowna.



Enjoy Our Renowned Food and Drinks Scene

Whether you’ve worked up an appetite with some outdoor activities or had a slow day exploring the city, Kelowna has plenty to offer when you start feeling hungry, thirsty or both.

Our city has multiple unique spots for breakfast and brunch, especially places that support local producers, feature local and sustainable ingredients, and most feature gluten-free options. Some of the best include The Bohemian Cafe, Diner Deluxe Kelowna, The Jammery, and Central Kitchen + Bar. You can discover more about these popular places by reading our list of the best breakfast-brunch restaurants in Kelowna.

If you’re looking for restaurants for lunch or dinner, we have also provided (tried-and-tested!) recommendations in our Guide to Restaurants in Kelowna. Our city also has a lot of excellent restaurants with outdoor dining and patios.

If the weather is lovely and you want to eat al fresco, consider heading to The Lookout at Gray Monk, Earls Kelowna, Old Vines at Quail’s Gate, DunnEnzies Pizza Co, Lakeside Restaurant at the Hotel Eldorado, 19 Bistro @ Fitz, or Central Kitchen + Bar.

Again, we’ve put together a guide to these recommendations in our list of Kelowna’s best outdoor dining and patios.
