So... What Makes Your Okanagan Vacation Special?

An Okanagan vacation... Summer or winter, Okanagan BC travel brings visitors here for so many wonderful reasons. The Okanagan Valley British Columbia is known as the 'Napa of the North', Canada's fruit belt, home of Ogopogo, and the best beaches & golf.

We think it's one of the Most Beautiful Places to Visit in Canada! :-)

Affordable and worry free, an Okanagan Valley vacation is filled with everything you want to do, in one easy to get to and incredibly beautiful place.

It's really quite amazing that such a small region...

(the Okanagan lies in the southern interior British Columbia, Canada)

...can have so many things to see and do, all in an area that is less than one-fifth of the size of the entire province.

We are one family who has visited the Okanagan for our own vacations for many years.

We love it so much, that now we live and work here, and we still spend our winter and summer vacations in the Okanagan, too.

When we travel around the Okanagan we find a few things in common everywhere we visit...

Okanagan Beaches Are Spectacular

In the summer, there's everything from the lakes and beaches, to boating, sailing, hiking, climbing, camping, golfing, biking and wineries.

We also find something unique and charming in each community and region in the valley that we don't find in another.

Hello from Saskatchewan! We vacationed in the Okanagan last summer and plan to return again this year. Camping in BC is beautiful. We spent one week in the Shuswap and one week in the Penticton area. As you say, it is a great place for family! Our three kids enjoyed all the attractions, and we mostly enjoyed the beaches in Penticton. It's a beautiful relaxed city with lots to offer. Great information on your site. Thanks!

Hi there! My family of 4 will be visiting the beautiful areas around Vernon and Kelowna this July for the 1st time. This site was very helpful in locating some attractions (other than water sports...) to keep us occupied during our stay. Thanks and i'm sure we'll be back again next year!
