Choose any of our Kelowna holidays and you'll soon be arriving at the northern tip of the Okanagan Valley wine region, in British Columbia’s southern interior. The city itself was the first to be settled in the region, and out of any the urban centres in the Valley, it has the most amenities and variety of accommodation. Summers are hot and humid, and winters do see snow and below zero temperatures, but even so, the mercury rarely dips below minus five Celsius.
The Kelowna International Airport services all the major hubs in Canada and the United States, making it easy to get in and out. Travel by ground offers breathtaking scenery, though the two-lane nature of most of the highways in and out of the valley are not built for speed, and traveling in the area sometimes means being stranded due to rock slides along the mountainous roads. The area surrounding Kelowna, indeed the entire Okanagan Valley, is dedicated to agriculture, and fruit from the region has been landing on Canadian tables for well over a century. The wine culture is relatively recent by comparison, the oldest winery being Mission Hill, which was established in 1966, though did not begin to produce commercially available wine until the early 1990’s.
