Summer

There is nothing like summer in Osoyoos.

The hot, sunny days, sandy beaches and the warm waters of Osoyoos Lake make for a perfect summer vacation. Enjoy the endless water activities. Swimming, floating, or sun bathing on the shores of Osoyoos Lake. Kayaking, canoeing, or the new trend of stand up paddling. Spend the day out on the boat and try your hand at wakeboarding, tubing or waterskiing. Generations of families come back year after year to experience summer in Osoyoos.

The fresh fruit and vegetables are bountiful in the summer. Cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, prunes…once you try our fresh fruit, you won’t want anything else!

We have over 30 wineries in and around Osoyoos. Take a day to sample the wines of the region and take in the beautiful views of vineyards and valley.

It is HOT in the summer – plan your activities accordingly. Strenuous activities are best done in the mornings or evenings when it is cooler.
