Located on beautiful Okanagan Lake, Kelowna offers countless outdoor activities including mountain biking, water sports, golf, skiing and snowboarding. The vibrant downtown core is abundant with unique shops, cafes, patios, galleries, and music festivals. Top it all off with sandy beaches, mountain ranges, orchards and vineyards, and affordable living we like to think of Kelowna as a veritable paradise.
