The journey to Naramata begins with a sharp curve in the road, sunshine, and a smile as you leave the city life behind and leisurely wind your way along The Naramata Bench. Through vineyards and orchards, past wineries and distilleries, and by charming bed and breakfasts you’ll go— all bathed in the reflection of Okanagan Lake. Soon, the magical lure of this village draws you into a scene from an innocent movie: beachfront cottages, an old fashioned corner store, artisan shops and farms, and a friendly wave from the locals. Nothing more refreshing than an early morning flight over the Naramata Bench and South Okanagan Valley. Having grown up in Naramata, it was breathtaking seeing the familiar cliff hanging vineyards, hidden river canyons, and forested hillsides from such a unique perspective.
