That is a great hiking or biking trip close to Kelowna. The bridges are just amazing all made of wood. Very beautiful and worth to take the time about a half a day. Please just check the weather conditions because of the wildfire and smoke.

We road in inside cars which were very comfortable. The service was great and watching the pretend robbery was fun. We enjoyed the music and the bbq after the train ride.

We picked a rather cool day to ride the train, especially in the open cars..We were told by a friend to always try to get the seats closest to the inside..or on the side of the station.THE VIEWS ARE MUCH BETTER EVEN FOR TAKING PHOTOS.....More
