Explore BC

Follow four travel bloggers—two teams of two—on a month-long adventure as they Explore BC and its many unique experiences.

Team Orca consists of Brendan and Rob, hailing from Rocky Mountain House and Ottawa, respectively. Both are seasoned world travellers and this will be the first time they’ll be meeting each other. Team Eagle is Dina and Ryan, a husband-and-wife duo from London, Ontario, who have visited more than 40 countries together since 2009, yet have never visited British Columbia.

Over the course of four weeks this summer, these four bloggers will attempt to experience much of what BC has to offer: everything from white-water rafting and whale watching to gliding and rock climbing; from winery tours and brewery tours to historic museums and aboriginal experiences. Be sure to follow the adventure on our Facebook page and have your say in where they go and what they do!

A great view of Penticton can be had from the top of Munson Mountain. It’s easy to find: it’s got “PENTICTON” written across it, like the famous Hollywood sign.

We had a short walk up the hill and were rewarded with a beautiful panorama over the vineyards and lake below.

We’d heard that a thunderstorm was coming, and from our vantage point could see angry skies and lightning striking in the distance. We enjoyed the view for awhile and then hurried back to the comfort of our B&B to escape the impending storm.

By far, our favourite thing we did in Osoyoos was hiking to the top of Kobau Mountain. Why? Because it’s spectacular up there! Shrub-steppe at the bottom, mixed with pine forest and alpine flower meadows on the top. The view to Osoyoos city and the unique Spotted Lake with mountains and valleys as far as you can see are breathtaking.

1873m high, you don’t have to hike all the way from the bottom. We drove our Toyota Prius pretty near to the top, parked there, and had a leisurely 30 minute  hike to the top. We made a lot of stops observing the flowers along the way. We spotted some I haven’t seen anywhere else!

We didn’t see anyone else on the mountain that day, which made us love it even more: it was like having the whole world to ourselves!

We visited Sun Peaks near Kamloops yesterday, a popular ski destination in the winter time. During the rest of the year it’s a great place for mountain biking and hiking.

And oh! They have a Kevin Costner and Modern West Free Outdoor Concert this weekend! (July 7, 3.30pm)
