Kelowna's location along the eastern shoreline of Okanagan Lake translates into a remarkably diverse landscape where outdoor recreation thrives.
The lake draws water hounds for swimming, boating, wakeboarding, and kayaking. The rolling terrain is great for golfing, hiking, and cycling. In winter, Kelowna's Big White (mountain) is a hotspot for downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.
Meanwhile, Kelowna's fertile agricultural land ensures that locally sourced vegetables and fruit and locally produced wines are never far from any restaurant table, while its growing urban culture promises excellent galleries, museums, and performing arts.
