The moment you see Kelowna, you’ll be absorbed in its mix of urban flair and rural charm. Nestled right in the heart of British Columbia’s wine country, Kelowna is the perfect stop for wine connoisseurs, watersport enthusiasts and avid golfers. The city hugs Okanagan Lake, the main water source that fertilizes the rich fruit orchards and vineyards in the valley. Paddle, swim and play along the lake’s shores, or tantalize your palate with the fine wines produced just a few minutes from the center of the city.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
The Okanagan Valley’s claim to fame is in the incredible wines produced by the local wineries located on its outskirts. Don’t leave Kelowna without visiting one of the many vineyards here. Try Ex Nihilo Vineyards’ signature ice wine or go green with organic wines from Summerhill Pyramid Winery.
• Hit the links at the Harvest Golf Club, a one-of-a-kind course where you can pick apples, peaches and pears while you play from mid-March to mid-November.
• Lush grass and beautiful beach views are sure to make a picnic at Bertram Park memorable.
• If you spend the day by the lake, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Ogopogo—the legendary monster that is said to inhabit Lake Okanagan!
Okanagan Lake is a haven for tame and wild watersports alike. Stop by a rental stand and try your hand at windsurfing and sailing. Or rent a kayak and paddle out as far as you dare.
