Why a 2h ride is better

With the 1h ride we don't reach the parts of the park with this wonderful view we would like to share with our guests. With the 2h ride your guide has enough time to make a round to the area above the mission, the southern area of Kelowna. There you oversee the town, the lake and the valley.
