Destination Basics

Kelowna is one of those wonderful places where visitors can enjoy time outdoors, any season of the year. Aside from a lightweight jacket and pants during the winter months, you’ll be able to pack light for this trip

Summers in Kelowna are hot, sunny and perfect for lounging on the beach. Temperatures often reach the mid 30s C in the day but cool down quickly in the evenings...

The Cascade Mountains in the west and Canadian Rockies and Columbia Mountains to the east as well as the Okanagan Lake tend to ward off cold weather in the winter. Average winter temperatures hover between 5 C and the 0 C mark, while fall temperatures tend to be warmer (often in the low 20s C). The occasional cold snap does hit the region but generally these don’t last for long. Snow typically falls in December and January although it’s typically minimal. June, on the other hand, experiences the most rainfall.

Window views in Kelowna are like paintings of perfectly framed skyline, mountain peaks and lush tree-lined meadows. Here, you’ll feel as relaxed inside at the spa as you will outside on the beach or boardwalk. Even the golf courses in the region offer optimal relaxation (not to mention fantastic greens and conditions)...

You’ll find plenty of low-key, shop-lined streets to explore in town and many lush orchards and vineyards to visit on the outskirts. Take a trip out to West Kelowna, often referred to as Westbank or Westside by locals, where you’ll find some of the region’s most distinct houses and lookout points.

There is also unlimited outdoor adventure for the taking in Kelowna. Hit the slopes at Big White in the winter and try runs perfect for every skill level. In the summer, rent a boat, jetski or kayak and explore the beautiful blue waters. If you’re looking to try something really adventurous, head out on a waterskiing trip or try parasailing.

No matter what you choose to do, Kelowna will welcome you with open arms – and some great beaches, incredible daytrips and adventures for the whole family.
