Local Info

Getting Here

Kelowna is served by Kelowna International Airport (YLW), to which there are direct flights from a number of nearby hubs, including Vancouver (YVR), Victoria (YYJ), Calgary (YYC), Edmonton (YEG) and Seattle (SEA).

Kelowna is roughly 4 hours of scenic driving from Vancouver and 7 hours of spectacular driving from Calgary.

The event sites are at the Kelowna Nordic Ski & Snowshoe Club, roughly 45 minutes of driving on Highway 33 east from downtown Kelowna.

Accommodation Options

Hydraulic Lake Recreation Site & McCulloch Reservoir Recreation Site

These are 2 Recreation Sites and Trails BC campgrounds close together and very near to the event sites. These cannot be booked in advance and are first-come-first-served, but we expect that the event weekend will not be very busy. We are looking into the possibility of pre-booking a block of sites.

Hydraulic Lake Recreation Site – 25 campsites

McCulloch Reservoir Recreation Site – 33 campsites

Idabel Lake Private Residences

Privately-owned resort residences on Idabel Lake. Some suites are available to rent on AirBNB.

Additional Options

We are continuing to investigate additional options for accommodation. There are many options in Kelowna, which is a roughly 45-minute drive from the event sites.


Public transit does not service the event sites which are roughly 45 minutes from the Kelowna International Airport, so transportation by private vehicle is a must.  If you will not have your own transportation on the weekend of the event, we recommend asking to carpool with other orienteers on Attackpoint.

Event Banquet

No banquet will be organized by Sage – you are responsible for your own food and accommodation throughout the event. There are 2 large campgrounds close together and near the event sites, so it should be convenient to get together with other orienteers.
