Visitors and residents of our town share their delight in this land of unique diversity ‐ truly deserving of its awarded
title of "Prettiest Little Town".
Osoyoos is in part of the only desert in Canada with the lowest rainfall, the highest temperatures, and the warmest
lake. It is located in the middle of Southern Okanagan wine country, whose award‐winning wine matches any from
France to California.
Osoyoos is an old town, our history dating back several centuries. Originally the Hudson's Bay Company packhorses
came through here, and the aboriginal peoples have been in the valley for thousands of years. This unique history
landmarks the South Okanagan area as one of the first places many explorers chose to visit; even before the arrival
of Christopher Columbus.
But Osoyoos is more than a friendly town and a beautiful lake. We have a great selection of attractions
and events to suit any holiday vacationer!
For the casual outdoors enthusiast, Osoyoos has many paths and walkways to follow. Bike and motorscooters
are available for rent and many visitors spend the entire day riding along the lake. Our town is
blessed with mild winters ‐ in Osoyoos you may find yourself golfing one day, and skiing the next.
With any outdoor activity you must first decide between a myriad of breathtaking views ‐ fruit orchards
blooming in springtime, vineyards, the lake, or the evergreen‐covered mountains that envelop the valley.
For a longer day trip ‐ birding, fishing or hiking, nearby Kilpoola Lake is just one of many unique spots in
the Southern Okanagan.
With all these appealing features, Osoyoos hosts a vibrant Business Community with the best climate in
Canada. Plan your Visit now!
