Sandstone canyons, grasslands and forests play host to incredible hiking and mountain biking; there's also a dozen or so golf courses in the area as well as over 100 lakes and two major rivers which provide great fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting and tubing. Year round pursuits can also be found at nearby Sun Peaks Resort where winter activities including skiing, ice skating, dog sled tours and much, much more.

Clearwater combines an enthusiasm for outdoor adventure with a deep respect for the area's natural surroundings, rich culture and history. In summer, fishing, hiking, golf and kayaking can be enjoyed, while in winter skiing is available. Year round, wildlife viewing and bird watching is spectacular at nearby Wells Gray Provincial Park where there's also a network of hiking trails which traverse the Clearwater River Corridor.

Kelowna attracts visitors keen to go wine touring and taste locally produced food, to visit museums and galleries, and to take advantage of endless outdoor recreation opportunities. Okanagan Lake forms Kelowna's western boundary, with several nearby beaches offering swimming, waterskiing, windsurfing and fishing, while youngsters can build sandcastles on the shore and splash in the shallow water.
