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.

  • 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.
  • Great piece of history and fun steam engine ride for the kids. Scenery is beautiful and staff are excellent.
  • This is such a cute, unique and family oriented attraction. Is reasonably priced, and truly a must when In the Okanagan area. We have been there twice and wanna go again from Vancouver for the Robery(reenactment of a robery)
