Welcome to the Okanagan
WELCOME TO THE OKANAGAN
A spectacular oasis filled with discovery and unparalleled beauty, the Okanagan is Western Canada's prized jewel. Situated in the heart of BC's central and southern interior, sweeping mountain vistas provide a picture perfect backdrop for this natural valley corridor linked together by a series of magnificent crystal lakes, lined with lush, colourful orchards and some of the world's most exceptional vineyards.
Throughout the year, the Okanagan plays host to a wide assortment of four-season recreational activities. Boating, golfing, hiking, a full spectrum of water sports and kilometres of soft, sandy beaches provide endless fun from sunrise to sunset for Okanagan residents throughout the spring and summer months. In fall and winter, world renowned ski resorts like Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, Silver Star Ski Resort in Vernon and Apex Mountain Resort in Penticton become snow-filled playgrounds for world-class downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, tubing and more.
And while those who like to play in the Okanagan are never left wanting more, businesses also flourish here as the always present stream of visitors into the valley provides a healthy, year-round source of valuable tourism. Considered Silicon Valley of the North, the Okanagan is headquarters to some of Canada's leading hi-tech giants and home to a wide array of corporate offices.
Many describe our valley as the perfect combination of natural tranquility and modern, cosmopolitan living. Rich with all the amenities of a thriving urban centre - miles of untouched walking trails, parks and quiet shoreline coves are never more than a stone's throw away.
An ideal place to raise a family or the perfect spot to live out your retirement dreams, an unsurpassed lifestyle is the promise delivered to all those fortunate enough to call this BC paradise home.
