Lake Okanagan, Kelowna

Explore Lake Okanagan, a large body of water located in a provincial park. With a surface area of 351 sq km (136 sq mi), the lake was formed by the movement of glaciers, slowly carving the wide, deep basin. Numerous hiking routes across the park link up the many sandy and pebbly beaches dotted around the shoreline, ideal for a refreshing swim in the cool waters of the lake. Move around the park by boat, finding new perspectives on the dramatic scenery from on the water. See Lake Okanagan and all Kelowna has to offer by arranging your trip with our Kelowna day trip app.
