Osoyoos

— 4 nights
Thanks to favorable year-round weather and plenty of fresh water, the area surrounding Osoyoos remains a top producer of fruit and wine.
Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad and Okanagan Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Osoyoos Desert Centre and Horseback Riding Tours. When in Osoyoos, make a side trip to see McIntyre Bluff in Oliver, approximately Oliver away. There's still lots to do: tee off at Osoyoos Golf Club, explore and take pictures at Anarchist Mountain Lookout, view the masterpieces at Osoyoos Art Gallery, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Kobau.

Wineries & Vineyards · Wine Tours & Tastings · Parks
British Columbia's wine country, Okanagan Valley benefits from a dry and sunny climate, which makes it a favorable place for both growing fruit and taking outdoorsy vacations. Scenic vineyards and photogenic hillside orchards aren't the only reason to take a trip to Okanagan Valley, as this area also boasts many golf courses, hiking trails, sandy beaches, and plenty of snow in the winter for those looking to indulge in some colder-weather sports. The area's largest city, Kelowna provides a good base for Okanagan Valley holidays, offering all the amenities of a big city without actually being one.
