Osoyoos is Canada’s Warmest Welcome

Welcome to Canada’s desert. Immerse yourself in the valley of stunning beauty with unlimited vistas awaiting you. But, there’s more to us than just bright skies and wineries set against gently sloping hills. While we embrace and proudly showcase our vintner industry, we also have sophisticated resorts, championship golf courses, the nation’s warmest lake and a wide range of cultural, ecological, and artistic experiences. With a rich history, vibrant arts community and many cultural traditions, activities and amenities, Osoyoos has much to explore and discover. Our arts, history, and culture are best experienced firsthand with a visit to one of our local museums, art galleries, or interpretive centres.

Our friendly resort town, rich in unique Indigenous culture and colourful desert history, is also a notable centre for family gatherings, weekend escapes, weddings and recreation. Osoyoos does have it all – golf, spas, beaches, wineries, orchards, culinary delights, culture and eco-desert experiences are yours to enjoy. Osoyoos settles on a vast and rugged landscape with hills and grasslands that invite hiking, mountain biking and wildlife viewing within easy access to the town centre. In the heart of the Osoyoos desert is a downtown oasis. Picturesque, charming and vibrant.

Tour the art galleries, find hidden gems at one of our unique boutiques or relax by the pool, spoil yourself at a spa and experience the culture of the local artisan community.

A visit to Osoyoos isn’t complete without experiencing the warmest lake in Canada. Osoyoos Lake is perfect for water activities like kayaking, boat cruising, and Standup paddling. Sun worshippers can bask on one of several beaches for swimming, suntanning, or playing in the sand.

Whether you’re visiting for a day, a week, or even longer, one thing is for certain: Osoyoos will leave you with special memories that last a lifetime.
