Surrounded by a trio of mountain ranges – Columbia, Cascade and Coastal – on the shores of the 68-mile Okanagan Lake and just an hour’s flight from Vancouver, Kelowna is the largest urban centre of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. It is a relative newbie: although home to the indigenous Syilx/Okanagan First Nations for thousands of years, the first European settlers arrived in 1859, and the city of Kelowna was founded in 1905. But what it lacks in history, it more than makes up for with a laidback blend of culture, outdoorsy good times, a thriving wine industry and fun dining scene.
