4. Myra Canyon
On the edge of the beautiful and historic Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park sits an aerial tree top ropes course. Myra Canyon Adventure Park offers climbing in our ropes and challenge course lines, slack lining, disk golf, a lot of ground games and more at one of the most scenic spots in the valley. Guests of ALL ages are challenged to explore, climb, swing, dangle, balance, hike and solve physical challenges on a variety of climbing elements between trees.
5. Bike the Kettle Valley Trail
The Kettle Valley Trail is well-maintained between Kelowna (Myra Canyon) and Penticton and travellers make the 80 km trek daily. HooDoo adventures offers a bus service that will drop you off with at the Kelowna end, or about 2/3 of the way down the trail at Chute Lake – a mere 30 km route. Chute Lake can be reached by driving up past Naramata. The road does not go all the way through to Kelowna on this side of the Lake, so in order to get to Myra Canyon you have to go the long way up the main highway.
6. Kite Surfing
When the winds come up – and they do – Skaha Lake is a famous spot for kite surfing. Even if you don’t know much about the sport, if you are around on a windy day, take a stroll down to the Lake front and watch them fly. It really is amazing how good some of them are.
7. Power Boarding
During the summer you will find someone with a jetski and a powerboard set-up that you can try. Look for a table or a booth near the boat launch at Skaha Lake.
8. Jet Skiing
You can rent Jet Skis at either of the lakes. It’s a very popular thing to do, whether you want to let off a little steam and do some crazy maneuvers, or whether you just want to go for a cruise up the lake and back.
Of Course There’s More
On both Lakes you will find SeeDoo rentals, boat rentals, and opportunities to be taken for a ride – perhaps wake boarding or waterskiing – with a qualified driver.
