Warm weather, sand and water, wineries, golfing: it’s a beach getaway without having to go through customs!

Albertans LOVE Kelowna, and for good reason – great weather, beautiful landscape, and do much to do and see in every season!

What We Love About Kelowna


Kelowna has a celebrated wine scene – over 40 vineyards are creating exceptional vintages! From small family vineyards, to chic resorts, there’s something for every wine lover!

Brewing, Cidering, Distilling

Kelowna has spectacular vineyards, but did you know it has a bustling brewery, cidery, and distillery scene as well? With abundant Okanagan farms, the craft beer, cider, and spirits scene is excellent!


There are 19 exceptional golf courses in Kelowna – there’s one for every skill level. This is one of the best Canadian destinations for Albertans looking for a golf getaway!

Lake Okanagan

Over 30 beaches, boating of all kinds – from stand-up paddleboarding, sailing, wake boat, charters, kayak or canoe, this is an aquatic adventurer’s paradise! See if you can spot the elusive Ogopogo!

Skiing & Snowboarding

Sunny, beautiful powdery conditions. There’s excellent opportunities for both downhill and x-country skiing, and snowboarding


You haven’t lived until you’ve tried a sun-warmed peach fresh off the tree. Orchards, farms, markets -amazing produce


Dining in Kelowna

There is excellent dining available in Kelowna, here are a few places we recommend:

  • Farm to table dining – amazing locavore dining scene in Kelowna - the orchards and farms couldn’t be closer to Kelowna restaurants – the chefs can actually go and have their pick of fresh foods right from the farm or orchard.
  • Little Hobo Soup & Sandwich Shop - comfort food at comfort prices – this is a great option for breakfast and lunch, they also have a great coffee selection. Good vegetarian and gluten free options.
  • Bouchons Bistro - a romantic European bistro experience near Kelowna’s arts and cultural district. Go for a gallery walk, and end your evening with French cuisine!
  • Basil & Mint Restaurant and Bar - a lovely vibrant restaurant with a West Coast contemporary style. Vegan and gluten free options.

Things to do in Kelowna

  • Winery & Brewery Tours: Whether you’re an experienced oenophile, or just would like to learn more and experience this amazing industryrides and clinics.
  • Snowshoeing: Snowshoeing is a fantastic outdoor activity. It’s great for individuals and families. See the spectacular Kelowna scenery. This tour is great if you’re still getting acclimatized to the elevation – you take the chairlift up the ski hill, and your guide will take you on a beautiful snowshoe.
