Lower Okanagan Scenic Highway (PR 97) hugs mountain slopes as you journey through the Okanagan Valley. The steel blue Okanagan, Skaha and Vaseux lakes slide up next to the byway, connecting the route to the distant, rocky cliffs. Small towns, orchards and vineyards adorn the highway. Turnouts offer breathtaking views of mountains and sparkling ripples of water.
