The Okanagan is a vacationers paradise. Locals who live and work here will attest to the panoramic beauty, the vast selection of recreational opportunities, and the ideal four-season climate.

Okanagan Living at its Finest

The Okanagan Valley stretches 200 km (124 miles) from desert climate of the Great Basin in the south at Osoyoos, to vast boreal forests in the north at Vernon. And in between, Kelowna offers a temperate climate and fertile soils that are perfect for orchards and vineyards.

Beauty – All Year Long

It’s a place of sunshine and stunning beauty. You’ll be taking mild winters and warm summers for granted before you know it and you’ll find a recreational paradise with every pastime imaginable. World famous ski resorts, hundreds of miles of mountain terrain for cross-country skiing and snowshoe adventure. A patchwork of lakes and streams, including Okanagan Lake, for hiking, fishing and boating. Where the views are truly incredible you’ll discover championship golf courses waiting.

A Cultural Hot-spot

The Okanagan Valley has a rich cultural and artistic heritage too. It’s home to world-famous artists, sculptors and artisans. Wine festivals for every season combine with theatrical and musical headliner performances to make the Okanagan a hot-bed of entertainment all year long.

With the Okanagan’s modern transportation network, you’re just a half-hour by jet, or a pleasant four hour drive from Vancouver.
