There’s no better place to experience the sun than in the Okanagan Valley – visit Vernon this summer for some really fun ways to get out and get your Vitamin D!


Did that catch your attention? Well why not? It’s pretty cool! Vernon’s historic O’Keefe Ranch offers one hour yoga classes with a professional instructor while surrounded by the Ranch’s curious, agile, and oh so cute Nigerian Dwarf goats. Taking place throughout the summer, it’s a perfectly safe and a fun way to commune with natural world in an unforgettable setting.

Tickets include admission to O’Keefe Ranch itself – this historic site has belonged to the O’Keefe family for over a century. One of the most prominent families to settle Vernon, the Ranch features historic buildings, re-enactments of life on the ranch and more. It’s a fascinating trip through history and we here in Vernon love it – check it out and maybe you will too!
