Osoyoos (pop. 4,845) is located in Canada’s only true desert and in one of the province’s best wine regions. The town is 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.
There’s more to the town than just bright skies and wineries set against gentle sloping hills. While Osoyoos embraces and proudly showcase their vintner industry, they also have sophisticated resorts, championship golf courses, the nation’s warmest lake, and a wide range of cultural, intellectual and artistic experiences.
It’s a place where First Nations culture and contemporary lifestyles exist side by side and where 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, Osoyoos is the ultimate year-round desert destination with a climate that will allow you to luxuriate in a unique surrounding, taste delicious fresh fruit and drink our award-winning wines directly at their source.
