As Canada’s only true desert, the Okanagan is where organic orchards and desert-inspired artworks mingle with the subtle flavours of the region’s many vineyards. From the glitz of Sparkling Owl Resort to the delightful charm of Blasted Church wine labels, the interior of the province is rich in creativity.
It is here that you will find the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies as well as a waterfall twice the height of Niagara Falls. This is a region that truly has something for everyone. Foodies flock to the food and wine; families can’t get enough of the many sandy lakeside beaches; and outdoor enthusiasts come for the golfing, hiking, biking and skiing.
The Secwepemc Museum & Heritage Park is an excellent place to begin your Okanagan experience, unlocking the history and culture of the Okanagan, from its Aboriginal peoples to European fur traders to wine makers and food producers – all strongly tied to the land.
