What is BeadTrails®?

The BeadTrails is a fun, affordable, cross marketing and branding service created to promote communities & businesses. We offer self-guided tours to attractions and businesses in the Okanagan, Shuswap & Similkameen regions. Customers travel independently to participating businesses to collect a unique bead, and at the end of their tour they have a memory bracelet!

We work with each business to develop a signature bead that helps tell their story and represents the uniqueness of each business. That bead is then placed on our interactive map.
