The city of Kelowna is located inland, in the south of British Columbia, in the west of Canada. This is right beside Okanagan Lake, which is within the area known as Okanagan Valley. With a population of just over 100,000 inhabitants, Kelowna is ranked as the 22nd largest metropolitan area in Canada. Spending your holidays in Kelowna will be perfect for you if you are keen to get up close and personal with the wildlife of Canada, yet still have plenty of activities and attractions to enjoy whilst in the area.

The nearby Okanagan Lake always features very highly on holidays in Kelowna. There are even beach areas around the lake that make for perfect spots to sunbathe during the long summer days and indulge in a number of popular water-based activities.

This is perfect if you fancy spending a few days on the slopes, during your break in the area. Other activities to participate in during the warmer months include hiking, cycling and golf.

In that they claim to have a mysterious monster living in the darkest depths of the lake. There are many attractions devoted to this ‘fictional fame to claim’ and this clever marketing ploy has helped make this part of B.C. very popular with tourists. Other more plausible attractions to visit in Kelowna include SOPA Gallery of Fine Arts, Kelowna Museum, the H2O Water Park (which will be loved by the young and young at heart) and the Kettle Valley Railway.
