Introducing sunny Kelowna, in the magnificent Okanagan Valley
Long called the ‘California of Canada’, the Okanagan is one of the best kept secrets of North America. Canada’s only desert carves through rolling hills, providing hot summers and snowy winters – something to suit sun chasers and snow worshippers alike.
The landscape is home to some of the best lakes on the continent and Kelowna lies on the shores of the famous Okanagan Lake. Leave your backpack at the hostel and head down to the shores for a bit of boating or to float down the lazy river under the sun. You won’t have far to go – the hostel is located right downtown and just a two minute walk from the beach. It is also close to Kelowna’s downtown shops, services, restaurants, and bars.
Visit the Okanagan Valley and experience one of Canada’s gems.
