Driving Directions

From Vancouver, B.C; (or Seattle/Bellingham, Washington, via Vancouver):

Follow Highway 1 (the Trans-Canada) from Vancouver to Hope. From Hope two options are available to get to Naramata:

  1. via the Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) to Merritt followed by the Okanagan Connector (Highway 97 C) to Peachland and Highway 97 South to Penticton. From the North end of Penticton while on Highway 97, cross Railway Street and continue on Eckhardt Avenue. Follow Eckhardt Avenue through the north end of Penticton and follow the signage to Naramata. Driving time is approximately 4 and half hours from Vancouver.
  2. via the Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3) from just past Hope. This option will take through Manning Park, Princeton, Hedley, Keremeos and on to Penticton, arriving at the south end of the city and on Highway 97. Follow Highway 97 until the intersection with Eckhardt Avenue, at the north end of Penticton, and turn right. Follow the signs to Naramata.

Both drives have their value, the Crowsnest providing rural scenery and drives through a number of communities; the Coquihalla and Connector offering 4-lane highway all the way to Penticton with the exception of a short stretch going through Peachland.

From Calgary, Alberta:
Follow Highway 1 through Banff National Park into the province of British Columbia. Near Sicamous get on Highway 97 A  heading towards Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon and Kelowna. From Kelowna follow Highway 97 to Penticton and then through the north end of Penticton on Eckhardt Avenue. Follow the signs to Naramata.

From Edmonton, Alberta:
Follow Highway 16 towards Jasper National Park. Just outside of the borders of the park and once you have entered the province of British Columbia take Highway 5 to Kelowna. Continue south to Penticton, BC and then through the north end of Penticton on Eckhardt Avenue. Follow the signs to Naramata.
