Okanagan Vacation Planning
An Okanagan vacation can be enjoyed through all four seasons of the year. Really! :-)
Plan your visit with our online vacation planning tips and resources. We'll help you find all the resources we can think of to plan your visit to the Okanagan Valley BC.
Start planning by choosing when you will be visiting.
The Okanagan Valley is tucked in the south central corner of British Columbia, where the climate and weather provides us with some of the best year round outdoor recreation.
Summer is the most popular time for tourism here, and the peak summer vacation season begins as soon as the school year ends. It seems like overnight, our population grows!
But the Okanagan is really a year round destination, with lots of exciting opportunities for winter vacation too.
The key to getting the best deals on accommodations, flights and packages is to search, compare, and book early - especially if you're visiting during summer.
We've got lots of pages throughout our website to help you plan your Okanagan vacation, and find options for getting here and getting around.

If you're visiting from out of country, you'll find these pages helpful for planning ahead whether you're driving or flying.
We also recommend TripAdvisor for Okanagan Vacation planning: You'll find lots of reviews for accommodations, restaurants and attractions, from other people who have traveled here.

Travel In BC Okanagan
During the summer months, in particular, our roads and highways become extremely busy. Major highway upgrades have been completed over the past few years, making travel here much safer. This region is a favorite for bicyclists and motorcyclists who share the highways with us during summer. And planning for winter driving is equally important, as our road conditions vary and change quickly, and can depend on where you are driving.
Travel Maps & Guides
Even though we have lived in the Okanagan BC for many years, we still like to have maps and travel planners for the most current information.
And once you're here you may find yourself wanting to get out off the beaten track for a day trip or to enjoy a scenic tour. If you want to spend some time exploring back country trails and scenic tours, you may spot some local wildlife, do some bird watching, or discover the unique desert ecosystems, plants and biomes. You'll benefit from some of these favorite Okanagan travel books and visitor guides.
