Okanagan from on High: Countdown to the New Year

fireworks from a helicopter

What are you doing New Year’s Eve?


It only lasts for one tick-tock of the clock, but that moment that one year turns into another is a cause for celebration across the globe. There are so many well-loved traditions that mark the occasion:


New Yorkers drop the sparkly ball in Times Square (that’s glitzy!)

Across Canada, people jump in frigid water for a polar bear swim (that’s crazy!)

In Scotland, they parade through town with burning torches to create a “river of fire” (that’s…hot!)


But what do we do here in the gorgeous BC Interior? Well, here at Valhalla, we count down with our top 12 favourite views from up on top of the world! (Now that’s amazing!)
