The largest city in British Columbia, Kelowna has been voted by it residents several years in a row as the best city in Canada to live. The scenery is some of the most beautiful in the north with Lake Okanagan very close by. The area has all the things travelers look for in big cities but for even more hustle and bustle Calgary and Vancouver are short drives away. The big city attractions give way to down to earth people, vineyards, and orchards as far as the eye can see.
There are so many excellent wineries and vineyards in this area that visitors are better off doing a full tour than trying to pick just a few to visit. Generally, the tours include tours of the vineyard facilities, tasting, lunch, and breathtaking views of the area. There are several different touring companies in the region each with their own spin on the wine tours. We suggest starting with Experience Wine Tours.

Visit an Orchard
Kelowna is responsible for a huge percentage of Canada’s produce so the area is rife with orchards and farms of all types. Again there are so many great experiences to be had that it’s hard to narrow it down to just a few. Kempf Orchards allows to guests to pick their own cherries while the Lavender Herb Farm will deck you out in all of their wonderful smelling concoctions and supplements. There are many more, but if you’re looking for a place to start both are good choices. When you go keep an eye on the time of year as that will dictate which orchards will be open for visiting.
