Kelowna, BC is recognized as one of the most desirable places to live in Canada. The city is located in the mountains of South Central British Columbia, just four hours by car from Vancouver and on the shores of beautiful Okanagan Lake.
Paradise for People who Love the Outdoors
Kelowna is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Summers are hot and sunny and winters are mild and snow free by Canadian standards. The area is home to world class golf courses, there are two internationally recognized ski resorts a short drive from the city center, and Kelowna is nestled on the shores of Okanagan lake – 115 km of pure bliss for beach and boating enthusiasts. Kelowna is at the very heart of Canada’s wine country and the Okanagan Valley is often called Napa Valley North.
Canada’s Fittest City
Kelowna has been named “Canada’s Fittest City.” A big reason for that honour is the city has become a hotbed for triathlons and cycling. The hilly country roads that wind their through the orchards and vineyards that surround the city offer variety and challenge for all levels of cyclists (former professional rider Axel Merckx lives in Kelowna, so if you’re out on a training ride you might just run into him or his father Eddy). If you’re not into road riding, the rugged trails that surround the city are also a playground for hikers and mountain bikers.
Kelowna is the off season home for dozens of NHL players who are drawn to the beautiful climate and scenery, the lake, and the many excellent golf courses.
