The Pink Flamingo - DowntownWelcome to the Pink Flamingo! This fun and cheerful home sets the stage for a lively vacation! Located in the core of downtown Kelowna, walking distance to boutiques, an exciting global dining scene and after-dark hot spots.

As the largest city in the Okanagan Valley, Kelowna is a vibrant gathering place for sun seekers, outdoor enthusiasts, and those interested in kicking back and chilling out. Situated in British Columbia’s wine country and surrounded by vineyards and orchards, Kelowna’s agricultural heritage shines in its farm-to-table dining scene, bountiful farm markets, and annual wine festivals and tasting tours. The city’s lakefront setting makes it popular with visitors who enjoy swimming, paddle boarding, and water skiing on Okanagan Lake, home to the mysterious lake creature, the legendary Ogopogo. Active adventurers can hike or cycle on scenic portions of the reclaimed Kettle Valley Railway in summer, while the winter months yield opportunities for a variety of snow sports in the nearby Monashee Mountains. Whether you’re looking to visit farms to pick apples, ride across trestles through steep canyons, or enjoy locavore cuisine, Kelowna can deliver sun-kissed days and memorable experiences.
Visitors can fly into Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and connect to flights arriving into Kelowna International Airport (YLW). Kelowna is accessible by car from Vancouver via Highways 1 and 5 and the Okanagan Connector 97C. In winter, note that your vehicle or rental car must be equipped with winter tires, or those with a M+S (mud and snow) designation. Parts of the highway are high alpine roads and can be subject to snowstorms, fog, and black ice during the winter months. If you don’t plan to rent a car, you can get around using taxis, public transit, and rideshare services. The city’s downtown core and the Okanagan lakefront are highly walkable, especially during the summer.
Kelowna’s weather is one reason for the city’s popularity with outdoor enthusiasts. The warm, dry summer season can see scorching temperatures during the peak months of July and August, which are marked by low humidity and an arid climate. During these months, the beaches and waters of Okanagan Lake are a cool escape from the heat, buzzing with swimmers, paddle boarders, and water skiers. The winter months see colder temperatures that require warm layers and winter coats, particularly if you’re keen on hitting the nearby slopes for skiing, riding, or snowshoeing. The surrounding wine country and abundant farmland are ideal for enjoying autumnal farm harvest tours and spring wine festivals, celebrating the rich agricultural bounty of this vibrant city and region.
Home to a variety of farm animals, this peaceful sanctuary offers interactive connection with a range of creatures, including cows, horses, goats, and llamas. At Arion, you can help with farm chores such as feeding the animals, including bottle-feeding lambs and calves, or pet your way through the paddock of inquisitive goats and sheep.
With an annual snowfall of 7 metres (24.5 feet) of dry champagne powder and a central pedestrian-only village, Big White offers first-class skiing and riding, as well as a host of family-friendly snow sports on and off the slopes. Play a game of shimmy on a frozen pond or test your limits by climbing a 60-foot ice tower.
High in the hills east of Kelowna, the steep-walled Myra Canyon is a spectacular portion of the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR). Here you’ll find two tunnels and 18 trestle bridges built at the start of the 20th century. You can hike or bike the trail or enjoy a guided tour with a local company.
