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.

  • This is such a special historic place. So great that this has been restored and is in operation for everyone to enjoy. The railroad in the Okanagan is long gone, so it is amazing to have this piece of it preserved. Just hoping aboard the Christmas train, they sure do an amazing job with this event. Highly recommended for all ages.
  • Best Trip Ever! Go for the Train robbery & BBQ! It is totally worth every penny! Want your kids to peal their smart phones off their faces! This is the event to go to. You will be off your seats with excitement watching the train robbery take place. It's fun for the whole family. Book your seat in advance as it is very popular! Don't expect to show up and get a seat!
  • Kids age 2 and 3 loved singing songs and meeting santa. Nothing to see out the windows during the christmas train. Great for young kids.
  • Wonderful train ride through Summerland. So much fun. My family and I go everytime we visit the Okanagan valley.
  • What a wonderful trip! Thank you to the staff and volunteers for lovely experience
