What is a swagman?
The term originates from Australia and describes someone who traveled by foot from farm to farm seeking work, carrying all of their belongings in a swag. This vision of the original swagman is what our founders had in mind when they started Swagman.
But our founders were in search of adventure - not work - and their swag included bikes, kayaks, or anything else they could use to explore the beautiful nature surrounding them in British Columbia, Canada.
Swagman calls the Okanagan Valley home. We were founded in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada
