The Okanagan You Remember

When you visited the South Okanagan with warm sun on your skin, hot sand on your feet, you raced to the soothing relief of the lake. Giggling as the waves rippled around. Was it this beach where you first froze your brain slurping a milkshake with the tastiest fries ever?

Birds chirping as you hiked marshy boardwalks or pristine pathways in the desert or along a creek or lakeside to a waterfall or panoramic peak? You could bike forever. Sunsets lasted for hours.

That first peach you picked yourself, dripping with juice as you bit it.

Best bedtime stories told around a crackling campfire.

Peachland to Osoyoos, revisit these treasures of the South Okanagan, home to many such beaches, trails, and orchards. Even more culinary adventures await today with a thriving wine, craft beer, cider and spirits scene.

Expand your knowledge of the desert, the Indigenous culture, the pioneers who forged the Kettle Valley Railway, and local flora and fauna.

Travel back to the Okanagan You Remember to relive and capture golden memories.
