Where Are We?

At the gateway to the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys lies Canada’s only desert, and the delightful lakeside town of Osoyoos. We’re a year-round destination, located at the northernmost tip of the great Sonoran Desert, offering a distinct and authentic visitor experience. Osoyoos is a small, friendly resort community that exudes a big city style, with unique shopping, exceptional dining and remarkable things to do. Whether that’s trekking through the desert, swimming in Osoyoos Lake (Canada’s warmest lake!), sucking back oysters at the Annual Osoyoos Oyster Festival, or launching on a sockeye salmon fishing expedition with First Nations guides, your experiences will be unforgettable.
