Vancouver - Kelowna: Best route?

Jump to last reply

Hello there! Part of our Sept-Oct holiday to Western Canada includes driving from Vancouver to Kelowna en route to the Rockies. As far as I can see, there are two obvious ways to travel:
Hwy 1 Hope - say, Lytton - Spencers Bridge -Merritt
or Hwy 5 Hope - Merritt
Which is the most scenic/interesting and how long a drive will each take? My guess is that Hwy 1 is more interesting but Hwy 5 is quicker. Is there another alternative?
Thanks in advance.
