Osoyoos British Columbia

Osoyoos, BC  

Located on BC Highway 97 in the south Okanagan Valley, only five minutes from the Canada - US border, Osoyoos, British Columbia, basks in Canada's driest climate. A fact not lost on sun loving vacationers and retirees!

In fact, Osoyoos is located on Canada's only desert - the northern most tip of the Sonora Desert. Situated in the heart of the South Okanagan, and boasting the lowest annual rainfall and the highest average temperatures, this is appropriately called BC's Desert Wine Country!

Visit Canada's warmest lake - Lake Osoyoos - for a wide array of watersports or enjoy many of the festivals and jamborees hosted here.

Fish in nearby lakes, hike the hills or golf one of the local links. Lodging, accommodation, restaurants, pubs, shops and services are located in Osoyoos.
