A lakeside city blessed with sandy beaches and surrounded by vineyards and mountains, it doesn’t take long to see the attraction of a break in Penticton. Whether as a stop on a self-drive holiday through British Columbia, as a holiday destination in itself or as part of a wider Canada tour, this is a location that offers much to the discerning traveller.
Known for its vineyards, the countryside around Penticton is known as wine country. Anyone partial to a vintage should take a tour or attend a tasting whilst here. In fact, with rich agricultural lands surrounding the city, there’s a real ‘farm to table’ dining culture here, meaning foodies will find plenty of fresh local produce to enjoy on a stay in Penticton.
Getting active is easy here too. There are plenty of watersports and family-friendly activities available by the lake, whilst hiking and cycling trails are abundant in the surrounding landscape. For some more gentle outdoor exercise there are also some great quality golf courses in the area.
