TripAdvisor has released the list of the top 10 places in Canada to visit, and the Okanagan did not make the cut. YOU HAVE TO BE JOKING
USA Today has named The Okanagan Valley as the world’s second best wine region to visit amongst a list of the top 10 worldwide wine destinations.

What a surprise to come upon this beautiful valley. The. Terrain and vegetation so different from most of the route on the way from Vancouver.
The lake is lovely and the water warm enough for an early morning swims.
Visiting the wine farms was a great experience, lovely wine particularly the whites.
Good accommodation in Osyoos, not sure about that spelling. Perhaps a little run down but right on the lake and clean.

What a year for weather! I have just spent two weeks touring the North Okanagan. This is sports car heaven. There is little or no traffic, unlike the central Okanagan, which is crazy. The back roads between Armstrong and Salmon Arm are a blast in my Miata. If you are a driving enthusiast I highly recommend September as the time to visit this jewel of an area. Don't miss drives from Vernon to Nakusp, from Enderby to Mabel lake or down to Nelson and back. Stay in the Armstrong hotel if you really want a retro experience.

WOW!!!!!! Place was Awesome, I would say better then Napa Valley by far. I would compare to Walla Walla, Washington and Sonoma Valley, CA. People in Canada are so nice, not just in our trip to the valley but just in general. I would give the Valley a 10 plus. I'm going back for sure and wine tasting is $5 or free. :)

We travel to Kelowna BC from Calgary AB,on a monthly basis from spring to fall. It is a wonderful drive during may-oct but prior I would recommend flying due to unpredictable weather through the mountains. Even in May watch for weather reports but majority of the time is fine.
We travel through Sicamous route, which is by far more scenic, but make certain to plan breaks to take in the beauty. If planning to stay overnight along the way, I would recommend one of these Canmore, Banff, Revelstoke, Kelowna. The drive from Calgary to Kelowna averages 7.5 -8. hrs with a break for lunch, so you could easily drive straight through, however there is so much beauty, if you have the time, stretch it out.
If going further than Kelowna, BC towards Vancouver, plan overnight stops so you can enjoy wineries, orchards and several various attractions. Make certain to stop for their FRESH FRUIT , there are several local orchard stops along the way. If you have the opportunity to pack a picnic lunch, there are some spectacular views and picnic spots. Just plan for TIME to ENJOY! There is a hot springs stop half way between Golden and Revelstoke on hwy 1, so even a swim suit and towel if you want a relaxation break.
Fuel up in Canmore before you hit the BC prices, it saves you and try to refuel again in revelstoke since Golden is always much higher.
There's some wonderful restaurants right in the revelstoke town, so don't be afraid to go off the main route for your meal break. Well worth the few minutes extra plus you get to see the quaint town with some historical homes.
OKANAGAN VALLEY is a beautiful site but especially during May (spring blooms - Sept (various fall colors and delicious fruit)....ENJOY!
