We love going to the Okanagan and trying different wineries. The hikes, beaches and general all around scenery make this area perfect for a romantic get away.

Even when it's not warm enough to enjoy the beaches or the water, lake Okanagan is absolutely beautiful. Best idea is to get up high and you'll be in for some amazing pictures 😍

a stunning lake with the beautiful mountains in the back ground. Really enjoy visiting and seeing the lake in the city of Kelowna. Its a long lake and a bit on the cooler side but absolutely stunning. Lots to do - boating, parasailing, fishing, water skiing or just relax !!!
