Vernon, located in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, is a true four-season playground where adventure awaits around every corner.

In the spring, hike, bike and adventure through fields and valleys bursting with blooms. Summer is about fun, whether it’s swimming, boating, or waterskiing in one of the warm-water lakes surrounding the city. With more than 100 lakes within one hour drive, fantastic fishing opportunities are never far away.

Take a drive up to Silver Star Mountain Resort, a world-class destination for mountain biking and alpine hiking. Play a round of golf on one of the many top-class courses, some of which have hosted PGA tournament events. Visit a winery and taste some of the best wines the Okanagan has to offer or enjoy a hearty meal at the historic O’Keefe Ranch.

Experience a harvest season second to none, with all the beauty and bounty you can expect of the Fall season. Drive alongside the many orchards and enjoy the Okanagan fresh fruits like apples, pears, peaches and cherries and more.

In winter, it’s all about the famous champagne powder and the steeps and deeps. Enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride or discover the beauty of the high alpine plateau on snow shoes or cross-country skis. Afterwards, relax in a world class spa high above Okanagan Lake and reflect on the memories of the day.

Whether it's relaxation or adventure, community or nature, great food or great atmosphere, you’ll find it in Vernon.
