Reader’s Digest has  listed Penticton business Hoodoo Adventure Co. among its top 10 Kayak Tours Across Canada.

“We were absolutely thrilled to get the news that we had been recognized on a national scale as one of the top 10 Kayak Tours in the country, and then to see that we were sitting at number three on a list of such stunning and unique experiences was a real validation of a tour that we have been so passionate about since we started the business eight years ago,” said Lyndie Hill, owner of Hoodoo Adventure Co.

Hoodoo Adventures brought together energetic, personable and dedicated individuals to provide quality outdoor adventures and team events to highlight the best the Okanagan has to offer.  With that has come a number of awards including the 2012 Hospitality and Tourism Award. at the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce awards.

Reader’s Digest listed their top 10 kayak tours for newbies to paddling pros who want to get in touch with Canada’s beautiful scenery.

“We have always made it our goal to pay special attention to our professionalism and the small details, matched with staff that are irreplaceable, it has been a recipe for success. We are proud to be able to offer an experience that truly highlights our unique geography that perfectly pairs wine and adventure as we help the valley gain momentum as a global destination,” said Hill.

The Reader’s Digest list states the Okanagan Valley is known for its spectacular scenery and for its wine industry.

“Penticton-based Hoodoo Adventures offers a selection of kayaking tours with the wine lover in mind. Start with the basic kayak wine tour — paddle up Okanagan Lake from Penticton into Naramata then taste local wines before being driven back into town – or diversify by adding a fruit and cheese picnic or beach or vineyard painting class,” it states in the article.

Other tours listed on the Top 10 list include multi-day trips in the Yukon, First Nations cultural tours on the Sunshine Coast, kayaking among the icebergs in Newfoundland and kayaking with belugas in Manitoba.
