Location

The city

Kelowna is located in the heart of British Columbia's wine region, in the scenic Okanagan Valley. Its rolling vineyards, vast orchards, beautiful shoreline and surrounding valley mountains, is home to more than 40 wineries and 220,000 residents. With a dynamic entrepreneurial energy, vibrant communities and spectacular natural environment, it’s no wonder the Central Okanagan is the fastest growing metropolitan area in Canada. Depending on who you ask, Kelowna can be described in many ways. The social culture seeker might say it’s a lakeside paradise offering some of the best beaches, restaurants, wineries, and artisans in the country. Ask the winter lover and they’ll say it’s a winter wonderland, with incredible skiing, snowshoeing and quaint outdoor skating rinks. The outdoors fanatics may say that it was made for adventuring, starting your day on one of its many hiking and mountain biking trails, to historic trestle bridges and cascading waterfalls, and wrapping up with all the local treats at the farmers’ market. What we’re trying to say is: we love Kelowna and we think you may too!

Surroundings

Nestled in the Interior of BC approx. 4 hours from Vancouver, BC, the Okanagan region is a four season playground. From sandy beaches to champagne powder mountains, the region is a destination for skiers, golfers, cyclists, hikers and boaters.

  • 2000 hours of sunshine annually
  • 3 ski resorts, over 40 golf courses and countless mountain trails
  • 20 beautiful lakes including the 110km long Okanagan Lake

Fun fact

Kelowna is home to the only floating bridge in Canada, the W.R. Bennett Bridge. Extending 1,060 meters (3,478 ft) long in total, the bridge includes a 690-metre (2,264 ft) string of poles holding pontoons supporting an elevated deck. At the deepest point, the Okanagan Lake is approximately 60 meters (197 ft) deep, and as the folklore has it, somewhere there in the deep is where the local lake monster Ogopogo may take a nap.
