Avid cyclists and beginners alike can experience iconic scenery British Columbian scenery on the Kettle Valley Railway Trail. Cyclists appreciate this mainly flat and very well-maintained trail. The historic trail was originally built for the now-defunct Kettle Valley Railway and was converted to a trail in 1990 after the Canadian Pacific Railway abandoned the train service. Bring your camera, especially to capture the trail’s ever-popular section through Myra Canyon’s steep and verdant chasms.

    We walked part of the trail in Naramata which gives you very nice and astonishing views over the Okanagan Lake. As it is an old railway path the climb is always very gentle. We walked up to the small ...  more »

    Awesome historic steam train that runs along a 10km stretch of the Kettle Valley Railway. Train comes with a knowledgeable conductor and banjo player. Family friendly. They also have scripted train robberies which sound like a blast.

    Highly recommend that anyone visiting the Kelowna area check out the KVSR. It's a unique experience that takes you back in time with stories from conductor, a fun banjo player, and amazing views of area. This is perfect for families or those adventurous travellers seeking a bit of nostalgia. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    RE-visit the days of old with a steam train from the past! Love this excursion on the Kettle Valley Railway, run by dedicated volunteers. Train goes about 10-12 kms, then stops for a chance to walk out onto the Trout Creek Trestle. Actors in costume, seasonally themed events and great for family and kids! Must see in Summerland and Okanagan.
