When hot summer temps transition to the crisp fall days, the Okanagan adventures don’t stop. Drive the scenic highways, visiting vineyards and orchards, and hike through mountains as they turn beautiful fall colours. It truly is a great season to enjoy the region.
Bike the Kettle Valley Rail Trail
A vast stretch of decommissioned train tracks have become the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, winding through the scenic mountains and connecting small communities. Combined with the connecting Western Rail Trail, there’s 492.58 km of pathway to explore.
Take a hike
Fall in the Okanagan is the perfect time to take a hike. If you’re in the Vernon area, try out the BX Creek and Falls trail. The two hour hike takes you through a cedar forest to beautiful falls. If you visit when the snow has started to fall, the trail is great for snowshoeing as well.
Take a wine tour
Can you travel through the Okanagan in the fall and not stop to tour some of the wineries? We think not! While most fall wine events have been cancelled due to COVID this year, you can still enjoy self-guided or private tours through the region. Check out some of these route ideas.
Celebrate the Harvest
Autumn means apple picking and pumpkin patches. The Okanagan region offers many orchards and farms open to the public with u-pick fruit, farm animals to visit, and playgrounds. Davison Orchards is a favourite spot in Vernon during the fall harvest.
Hit the Slopes
