Explore Osoyoos locally this Father’s Day, or start planning for future travel and treat dad to a weekend away this summer or fall. Osoyoos has so many activities for the whole family to enjoy, year round. Here are just a few ways to have some Father’s Day fun in Osoyoos!
With almost 50 km of shoreline and parts of the lake reaching over 200 feet deep, Osoyoos Lake is a paradise for dads that love to fish. Bring your boat or book a rental for a relaxing morning on the lake. Or, cast off from she shore – the mouth of Solana Bay on the south side of Motel Row and at the bridge on Highway 3 are two favourite fishing spots. Depending on the time of year, you’re bound to find bass, Kokanee Salmon, Lake Whitefish, Rainbow Trout, and more.
Treat dad to a round of golf or two! With long, dry summer days followed by a warm, sunny fall, golfers of all levels can almost play year round. Ideal conditions lie on both the 9-hole Sonora Dunes Golf Course and the 36-hole Osoyoos Golf Club. Dad can experience a variety of options that showcase the desert landscape, the lush vineyards and the orchards, complete with the stunning backdrop of Osoyoos lake.
Osoyoos is known for its amazing weather, fantastic wine and plentiful water activities, but this desert community in BC’s Okanagan Valley is also home to some incredible dining. Whether you’re treating dad to a round of golf, wine tour, or just a relaxing beach holiday, nothing compares to a nice brunch, lunch, or dinner to celebrate dad.

4. Distillery Tasting
Of course, Osoyoos is known for having 50+ wineries within 20 minutes of downtown, but why not treat your dad to something different?
Tumbleweed Spirits, Osoyoos’ first distillery, is a must visit. Crafting quality spirits like vodka, gin, moonshine and other seasonal favourites using local ingredients (think cherries, raspberries, apricots, and more!) Tumbleweed offers a variety of samples at their tasting bar.
