All About West Kelowna
Set on the western shores of Okanagan Lake within British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, West Kelowna is a city brimming with scenic mountain and lakeside views. The area is comprised of several neighborhoods all just across the lake from the city of Kelowna, the central hub of the metro area. The city and surrounding region is dotted with natural areas and parks with beaches, picnic areas, and hiking trails — local favorites include Bear Creek Provincial Park, Shannon Lake Regional Park, and Pincushion Mountain.
While there’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy in West Kelowna, the city’s possibly best known for its abundance of local wineries. Picturesque orchards stretch as far as the eye can see at several of the city’s world-class wineries, some of which offer majestic views — one even has an amphitheater. Fashion boutiques, farm-to-table restaurants, craft shops, and wine bars are all within reach from the array of West Kelowna vacation rentals that line the lakeside.

The most popular time to visit West Kelowna is between May and October, when the weather is mild to warm and perfect for hiking, swimming, golfing, or the many other outdoor activities the city offers. Wine touring season kicks off in the spring, which is an opportune time for visitors who want to learn about the wine-making process. Dozens of events centered around the area’s orchards and breweries take place in the spring and summer, and some of the most popular include the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival and BC Cider Week, an annual celebration of local cideries that takes place in May. In the fall, visitors and locals flock to the city’s farmer’s markets and apple orchards. When things start to cool down in the winter the area’s popular ski resorts are just warming up.
