Canada's Desert Wine Country

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.

“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.”
