My husband and I are planning a 5 or 6 night trip to the Okanagans, flying into Kelowna in order to save time. We have never been to this area before but have been to Banff, Lake Louise and Nelson. We've seen Vancouver and Victoria. My question is what nearby places should we drive to? We want to drive down, of course, to Osoyoos and stay there also. We have no plans other than starting in Kelowna and just want to visit the most scenic places. We will go to a couple of wineries but that is not the reason for the trip. We love to hike and want to stay at beautiful hotels. Any itinerary ideas would be very appreciated. If necessary we could extend trip by a couple of days. I was considering driving over to Merritt or Hells gate if it is a must see. We can also stick around the area from Kelowna to Osoyoos if there is enough to see and do for 5-6 days. We would also appreciate your opinion as to which towns to stay in. Thank you do much for any input.
