Cool lake waters, clear mountain air, warm sandy beaches and fresh green orchards – there’s no doubt that Penticton is a place to relax and rejuvenate, and why we are a proud partner of Wellness Travel BC.
Set in the scenic Okanagan Valley, Penticton life has an ebb and flow that lets you reconnect with your natural rhythm. With the right mix of adventure and recreation, movement and indulgent serenity, you are sure to discover your most relaxing vacation yet.
An active lifestyle is part of the Penticton culture and the city is equipped with plenty of modern health and fitness facilities. Swim laps at the Penticton Community Centre, try yoga at a winery or goat Yoga at GottaGoat Farm, or finish off a spin class with some fresh pressed juice, or a smoothie from Gratify Foods.
Feeling adventurous? Take it outdoors with a stroll through the woods to find hidden waterfalls, or rise with the sun for an open water swim. A cold craft beer never tastes so good as when you’re washing away the salty residue of a great hike, bike, or climb.

Slow it Down
Getting your sweat on is good, but part of a relaxing vacation is finding great ways to slow down and unwind. Take a meandering walk along the creek or enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine on a patio. Close your eyes and listen to waves lapping on the beach as you nap in the grass under the trees, or treat yourself to a day at the spa (you know you’ve been meaning to do that!)
However you do adventure and relaxation, finding the right balance is part of the magic of Penticton. Experience the ultimate BC getaway and return home truly refreshed.
