The good news is you don't need to know how to plan a wine tour bachelorette in Kelowna. Bare Wine Tours has worked with hundreds of maid of honours, and does all the heavy lifting, so that you can focus on all the fun stuff. BWT will provide local expertise on things to do, and places to stay in Kelowna so that your bachelorette weekend is unforgettable in all the right ways.
Like any good experience your day needs to be personalized for your audience, and most importantly the bride to be. We can share the things that have worked for our guests in the past, the heartwarming moments and all the little details that add up to memorable good times.
It isn’t surprising that Kelowna and the Okanagan have formed quite the reputation for the perfect Canadian weekend away. Picture this: endless reflections of the Okanagan Valley vineyards shimmer on the lake, and set the tone for a relaxing girls weekend away as you pull up to your sensational lake view accommodation. Think the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort, Hotel Eldorado, Manteo Resort, or one of the many luxury AirBnB’s in the area.
Experience the best of Okanagan Wine Tours
Your weekend just might not feel complete without a day of sipping Okanagan Wine. The bride may be a wine enthusiast or simply just loves wine with friends. Leave the planning to Bare Wine Tours or let BWT know all your special ideas so they can deliver your dream wine tour experience. Explore incredible vineyards in Kelowna, Lake Country, Summerland, Naramata, or further South on the Golden Mile Bench. Vino before Vows!
Spice up your weekend with some outdoor adventure
Whenever my friends get together for a weekend I think it’s always fun to plan some adventure into your weekend, and riding one of the many amazing trails in Kelowna with an e-bike rental from E-Kruise always satisfies my dopamine needs. A little adrenalin may be just what the doctor ordered before the bride ties the knot. E-Kruise has loads of planned routes where you can cruise with your friends and soak in the sights of the Okanagan Valley.
Enjoy a Boat Tour of Okanagan lake in style on a luxury Yacht! Power boats are loud, you can’t enjoy conversations, or dance to music on the waters. The Okanagan Sunshine can be hot. Keep cool, as you cruise the Okanagan Valley to explore views that can only be reached by boat and take advantage of your own personal captain. Top tip: Don’t forget your sun lotion and to drink lots of water! Heat stroke is not fun!
Farm-to-fork Food Scene
The Okanagan is famous for having the best weather in Canada. Just about anything grows well here and has led to a great farm-to-fork food scene. There are a lot of good choices to ensure the gals are well nourished and ready to embrace the vibrant lakeside nightlife of downtown Kelowna. The Hip Hop brunch at Krafty Kitchen is famous and available on Saturdays and Sundays 9 to 3. For lunch, you simply have to have a reservation at a winery restaurant like the Old Vines Restaurant at Quails Gate, the Angel Share at Crown & Thieves Winery, or Summerhill Pyramid Winery’s Bistro. 2 of the best restaurants downtown for a bachelorette party in the evening are Cactus Club and Earls. Both have lake views, a wide selection of great food, and lots of space for larger parties. Don’t forget to ask if anyone has food allergies in your party and ensure there are options on the menu for them.
The best night life in Kelowna
I recommend enjoying a night downtown after your wine tour. Be warned, those who go all out the night before the wine tour may end up ruining the main event for everyone. No one enjoys wine tasting hungover! BNA and and Skinny Dukes are two of our favorites for ambience and fun character.
No girls weekend is complete without a Spa treatment
After a busy day of touring and a night on the town, why not indulge and recharge at Sparkling Hill Resort’s KurSpa Wellness Centre, located between Vernon and Lake country, only a 45 minute drive from downtown Kelowna. If you don’t want to drive there is also a Spa at the Delta Grand Resort.
Bride and team bride swag
You can go one of two ways here and still keep it classy. I personally like it when the brides team gets goodie bags full of local things you can wear or use on the day but also things you would use or wear after the event also. We recommend checking out OKGN lifestyle. Alternatively, you can get t-shirts just for the bachelorette but still keep it classy.
Final top tip for your bachelorette wine tour weekend - Ensure you ask for a complimentary bottle of bubbly with your wine tour!
In summary, Kelowna and the Okanagan are the ideal bachelorette destination in Canada. You won’t be disappointed!
