Experience the Real Warmth of the South Okanagan
WHAT TO DO
HIKES & WALKS
We’re surrounding by great walks and hikes to stretch your legs on and reconnect with yourself in nature. Just up the hill at the NK’MIP Desert Cultural Centre, explore the “Living Lands” outdoor exhibit and sculpture gallery. Smell the wild sage along their network of walking trails and admire the view from the Chief’s lookout. Visit a reconstructed village and explore the rich living culture of the Osoyoos Indian Band. For a bird’s eye view of this incredible territory, nʕaylintn (pronounced nigh-lin-tin) is an unmissable landmark on Highway 97 in Oliver. Previously named McIntyre Bluff after a local settler, the bluff has been known to the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB) and its Okanagan ancestors as nʕaylintn for millennia. Some observers say the ridge of the cliff resembles the face of an Indigenous chief. A three-hour round-trip hike takes you to the top of the wonder where you will gaze upon the valley from 673 metres (2,208 feet) up. It’s a stunning vista that reveals the breadth of the landscape around you.
