With an average summer temperature of 30°C, and cool, dry winters with little to no snow, there’s no surprise that the Okanagan Valley is the 22nd largest metropolitan area in Canada, and rising.
The Valley’s total population is just over 300,000 people, with every one of them here for more or less the same reasons: the amazing climate, beautiful Okanagan Lake and its beaches, and breathtaking scenery in all directions. Located at the heart of the Valley is Kelowna, whose population reaches just over 110,000 people, making it the largest city in the Okanagan. With all the conveniences of a major city, such as fine dining, endless shopping, recreational activities/centres, and so much more, Kelowna never disappoints. Kelowna is also known for having some of the most beautiful scenery in the Valley, due to a wide range of terrain such as small mountains and rolling hills, with the crisp, blue Okanagan Lake serving as the back-drop.
