WELCOME TO OSOYOOS
Canada’s Only Desert in the Country’s Best Wine Region
There’s more to us than just bright skies and wineries set against gentle 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, intellectual and artistic experiences.
We’re a place where First Nations culture and contemporary lifestyles exist side by side and where our ancient traditions and modern life have each carved out their place within a dramatic and welcoming environment. Framed by desert hills, lakes, vineyards and orchards, we are the ultimate year-round desert destination with a climate that will allow you to luxuriate in our unique surroundings, taste our delicious fresh fruit and drink our award-winning wines directly at their source.
We are set on a vast and rugged landscape of hills and grasslands that invite hiking, mountain biking and wildlife viewing within easy access to the city. Osoyoos Lake is easily accessed from downtown for fishing, sightseeing or water activities.
Our hotels, B&B’s, and campgrounds have everything to fit your needs; whether you’re planning a family vacation, a fun weekend with the girls, or a romantic getaway for you and your loved one.
The town of Osoyoos has so much to offer for people of all ages. Shop at one of our artisan stores, treat yourself to a day at the spa, enjoy an afternoon of boating, and much more!
Osoyoos Wine Country
Like the Napa Valley in California, Bordeaux in France, or Italy’s Chianti region in Tuscany, grape growing and wine production in the Osoyoos region is both a business and a way of life. It defines the character and lifestyle for those of us lucky enough to live along the vineyards positioned along the rolling desert hills. And it’s a lifestyle in which you can indulge no matter how long the stay

“I love this city. It reminds me of my move from Lethbridge, Alberta, to British Columbia. I drove all the way about 1400 kms. A dangerous trip. It was winter time, snowing, freezing temperature, and when we got to this place, Osoyoos, it was like we were in an oasis. It’s the warmest place in British Columbia. Just beautiful!”
“I’ll never forget the first time we came over the hill from the East and saw Osoyoos. The light was magical and soft, like the South of France. We got out to walk and the scent of sage enveloped us. It was like a dream. Gotta get back there.”
