Snowshoe packages Kelowna hotel

When staying at Kelowna hotels, book a snowshoeing package to get outside and experience the great white outdoors this winter season.

There are so many ways to get out and explore the picturesque scenery Kelowna has to offer, especially during the winter months. Imagine an untouched, snow-covered trail that winds through breathtaking scenery, surrounded by trees and wildlife. The next time you stay at Kelowna hotels, get outside and see the beauty that is the Okanagan tucked under a blanket of snow by booking a Snowshoe Package. It’ll be the highlight of your stay!


The Trail

Located roughly 20 minutes away from most Kelowna hotels, the Kettle Valley Rail Trail nestled along the side of a mountain that boasts 11 trestles and 2 tunnels. Full of rich history, this trail is a destination for many during all seasons. This peaceful walkway is far from the crowds, and there’s a really good chance you may encounter some local wildlife. Your tour guide will explain some of the local flora and fauna as you come across it too.


The Gear

To make sure your snowshoeing experience is a good one, the team at Monashee Adventure Tours will take extra care and attention when fitting you for a pair of snowshoes. They’ll also make sure you understand some of the most common techniques and proper usage of the snowshoes. This will all be covered off in a short instructional demonstration that occurs as you begin to make your way along the trail. Because the tour groups are small, the guides will be able to offer assistance at any time along the tour.


The Whole Package

A guided snowshoe package is unlike a regular day outside wearing a pair of snowshoes on your feet. These packages are tailored to make your snowshoeing experience a good one. Start by enjoying a complimentary hot breakfast before your luxury Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van comes by to pick you up around 9:30 am.

From the hotel, you’ll be on your way to the Kettle Valley Rail Trail in the company of Monashee Adventure Tours.

After being fitted for a pair of snowshoes, the guides work together to introduce you to the proper snowshoeing techniques. Once you’ve become a snowshoeing expert, it’s time to hit the trail. Your guide, Trailhead Ed, will escort you to some exceptional spots that offer some of the best hidden trails in the area. He’ll also treat you to a little history lesson of the area while you cover some serious ground.

Once the snowshoe trip is over, you’ll be brought back to the hotel where you can relax in one of the hotel’s hot tubs or in your private jetted tub.
