Hi By far the most scenic trip is Highway 3 from Hope to Osoyoos. It passes through the Similkameen valley which has the old gold mining town of Hedley. Well worth a short visit to the museum. Osoyoos is a desert oasis with a spectacular view of the valley,lake and vineyards as you enter the town. Heading north on Highway 97 you pass through Oliver "Wine Capital of Canada" Pay a visit to the visitors center for up to date information on the wineries to visit. I would suggest you stay in Penticton for a night before heading to Kelowna.

MuftiM: We are hiring a SUV 4x4 for our trip, pick up at 10.00am staying in B/B's and hotels.

Days are long, weather pleasant at this time of the year, so long first day doesn’t matter just need to have a fulfilling drive to Kelowna.

officeboy ~ you will find in the above link extensive text that may or may not be interesting to you. Underneath the text and above the 4 images, you will find some names hyperlinked in blue print. Remembering that Hwy 3 goes completely across the province, click on those links that apply to your travels to see further descriptions of those areas.

Mufti: A number of contributors have stated that we should go through Osoyoos, so after going through Hope we can pick up the Crow nest Hwy to Osoyoos then up the 97 hwy to Kelowna

This website gives up a lot of information thanks
