The Victory Mine, on the shore of Mara lake in the North Okanagan is quite small and doesn’t take very long to explore. It’s important to take the whole journey into account as there is a short paddle along rocky cliffs to get there. The keen eye will be able to see pictographs along the cliffs and perhaps find a nice location for some jumping and swimming.

Exploring Victory Mine


There are a number of entry points but one suggestion is the lake access off Swanbeach road at Swansea Point. There is a good beach here with parking.

Any watercraft should do the trick
