Hike, Bike and Enjoy the Mountains
We are surrounded by mountains with hiking and biking trails for your outdoor enjoyment. The closet being in walking distance, just north of the edge of downtown Knox Mountain, you can even drive up to the 2 lookouts in summer. If want to take the little ones with you and see some fish spawning or learn a little about the forest then Mission Creek Greenway is a great place to visit. And for a more remote scenic mountain trail, the Kettle Valley Railway trail at Myra Canyon is within a short distance from downtown.
You will often hear Kelowna described as a four-season paradise, as Canada’s Hawaii and Napa North. Kelowna residents take pride in their weather and the distinct four seasons that provide perfect weather for four-season vacationers.
Kelowna shines in the summer. Hot and dry temperatures provide plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities. Cool off in the lake and feel the breeze while participating in boating activities. Average summer temperatures are between 25 to 28 C.
Summer stretches into autumn longer than most of Canada. Then as the days begin to cool and the leaves start to show their fall colours, the hiking and biking trails in the area mountains take centre stage for outdoor enthusiasts. This is an excellent season for golf and wine touring, while avoiding the summer crowds. October temperatures average about 14 C.
Kelowna boasts some of the mildest winters in all of Canada; however, we still see some snow, especially at our ski resort, Big White. This is excellent news for those who enjoy skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. Most days in winter hover around 0 C.
Kelowna is glorious in the spring. The weather warms up, the patios fill up and the views brighten as the fruit trees blossom. Like autumn, this is an excellent season to golf and wine tour before the business of summer. By May, temperatures begin to hit 20 C.
