Osoyoos is located in the southern most region of the Okanagan Valley. Osoyoos is located at the crossroads of Highway 97 (running North to Alaska and South to Mexico) and Highway 3 (West to Vancouver and East to Alberta). The town is home to approximately 4,000 permanent residents. Lake Osoyoos is the warmest lake in Canada with an average summer temperature of 24 degrees Celsius (70 Fahrenheit). There are numerous sandy public beaches and parks ideal for your family and 3 marinas for those who wish to rent power boats, skidoos, windsurfers or a paddle boat.

There are excellent accommodation properties for your overnight or long term holiday stay. If you are a camper stay in one of 10 sites in the area including Haynes Point Provincial Park. Haynes Point Park is a spit of land stretching out into the middle of the lake. This campground also provides public picnic areas for day use and excellent beaches.

Osoyoos is also home to Canada’s only "Arid Desert" containing a variety of flora and fauna such as prickly pear cactus, antelope bush, birds, bats and sand dunes. Access to the area must be arranged, as this land belongs to the Osoyoos Indian Reserve.

While in Osoyoos visit the Museum and take a walk back in time; or visit the Air Gallery featuring many talented Okanagan artists. Another Osoyoos Landmark is The Windmill featuring a unique teahouse and guided tours. Two other must-sees are the view from the Anarchist Mountain Lookout. The climb takes you from 910 feet to 4,045 feet! Another spectacular view may be found from Mr. Kobau just a short drive from Osoyoos and one of the highest peaks in the area. Another incredible sight is the Spotted Lake located just 9 km west of Osoyoos. The lake contains one of the world’s highest concentrations of minerals and in summer, when the water evaporates, the spots appear. The lake is on private land but you can view it from Highway 3.

This is just the beginning. Golf, skiing at Mt. Baldy, winery tours.... all this in Osoyoos and the South Okanagan.
