Perhaps a ride on Kettle Valley steam train or a pontoon boat cruise to cap off your day of meetings. A more holistic group activity might be a walk along the Summerland boardwalk or a yoga session at break time. There are so many things to do outside of the conference room that will get your attendees immersed in the local landscapes, flavours and Okanagan lifestyle.
