HELLO KELOWNA

Kelowna is an exiting hybrid of amazing food and wine, vibrant culture and beach based vacations on the shores of Okanagan Lake.  

 

Okanagan Lake

Okanagan Lake, which stretches 110km/68mi from Vernon in the north to Penticton in the south, is a focal point of Kelowna.  Downtown waterfront parks provide public access to a long stretch of shoreline with beaches, marinas, boat launches, and picnic areas.  Look for similar amenities at other municipal parks, plus campsites at Bear Creek Provincial Park.  Find out things to do, places to see, where to stay, dining, culture, history and more in Kelowna.  Contact me for more information, a free map and guide book and special coupons.

Stroll the boardwalk in the Rotary Marshes at the mouth of Brandt's Creek (at the north end of downtown) where waterfowl nest in the wetlands and an osprey platform is occupied every summer.  Hike or cycle the Mission Creek Greenway, which borders the largest tributary of Okanagan Lake.  This is an important Kokanee salmon spawning stream.

 

Climate and Weather

Kelowna experiences four distinct season, however, summers are long and hot with average daily highs in July of 27.6C and many days well into the 30C. Humidity is very low.  Winters are short and mild with average January highs of -2C and little snow.  Spring is marked by an abundance of showy wildflowers, especially the brilliant yellow arrowleaf balsamroot that carpets the hillsides, while stands of aspen and cottonwood turn golden in autumn. Precipitation averages just 340mm/13in annually.

Variations in altitude make the season somewhat elastic.  It is perfectly feasible to play a morning round of golf in Kelowna, followed by an afternoon of skiing at Big White Ski Resort.  This changing climate also means it is necessary to bring layers when visiting the mountains in summer.  Temperatures and weather conditions can vary quite dramatically.

Winter tires are strongly recommended when heading to Big White from early autumn through late spring.  Road conditions at higher elevations can be treacherous even when excellent in the valley.
