We hope you are excited to go to Kelowna, because we are! Here is a small update on the Kelowna trip for you about some practical things.
In a bit more than a week we are starting our adventure to Kelowna! We booked rooms with 2 queen size beds in a beautiful motel. This means you are going to share your room with 3 other people. We even arranged a kitchen in one of the rooms, so we can cook as well. In this way, you can save some money, which you can use for all the activities in Kelowna! Do not forget to take your swimsuit with you, if you would like to take a swim in the hotel’s indoor swimming pool. This is a great way to relax after an exhausting and fun day at the Big White or any other activity that you did on Saturday. For the ones who do not have any internet subscription, the hotel has free Wi-Fi available for all guests.
There are shuttle busses going from the city of Kelowna to the Big White, so that is at least one worry less. A round trip on this shuttle bus only costs $25. There are also other attractions near by the hotel. If you really want to go shopping, you can go to Willow park shopping centre, which is only a 13 minute walk from the hotel. A bit further, you can also find the Orchard Park Shopping Centre. Next to this shopping centre is Mission Creek Regional Park, which is a nice park close to the hotel. However, you can also take one of the beautiful hiking trails a bit further away from the hotel, such as Mill Creek Regional Park, Crawford Falls or Knox Mountain Park. They are all easy to reach. However, it takes a bit longer to get there by bus. All of them are great hiking trails and really worth your time. Of course, you can also take the bus to go to Lake Okanagan or to go to one of the wineries in the city centre.
Still interested, but have not signed up yet? No worries! There are still a few spots left, so sign up as soon as possible!
