Grapes on a vine (Andrea Johnson photo)
Oliver is known as the "Wine Capital of Canada." Surrounded by vineyards and dozens of wineries this is a good description.
But there's more to this town in the semi-arid South Okanagan Valley. Oliver was established as an agricultural town and the area's lush orchards produce a host of tree fruits including peaches, cherries and apples.
With its river, small lake, mountains and dry antelope brush and sage grasslands, Oliver provides many opportunities for outdoor recreation as well as bird watching and wildlife viewing. Oliver also offers a selection of historic and cultural attractions and it makes an excellent base for country driving excursions.
