Description Of This Tour

Ride with writer, biologist, birder and South Okanagan-West Kootenay MP, Dick Cannings, and history buff John Shaske, on a scenic cycling tour along the KVR Trail. You and your bike will be shuttled to the Chute Lake Lodge, recently purchased by Hoodoo Adventure Company where you’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast. From there you’ll begin a gentle descent down the 2.2% gradient. Stop, look and listen for a variety of birds on route and take in an array of flora and fauna as you travel through a subalpine forest into spectacular Ponderosa pines. Learn about the building of the KVR and visit relics of the Railway including Adra Tunnel and Rock Ovens. The 30km cycle to Naramata will end back at Wharf Park.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
