Autumn in the Okanagan is definitely something to see – the colourful leaves lining Okanagan Lake will take your breath away. To take advantage of the stunning views and beautiful fall foliage when visiting Kelowna hotels, try some of these activities that shine during the fall season.
The Okanagan is full of lakes, wineries, golf courses, rolling hills, and mountains. Although these views are amazing in the summer, they’re even better during autumn. Besides taking in the sights from above, you can even book a couple stops at local wineries. There’s nothing better than touring the Okanagan while sampling some of the best wines the valley has to offer.
This beautifully scenic portion of the Kettle Valley Railway offers visitors some of the best views in the city. Ride through two tunnels and over 18 trestle bridges while being enveloped in unparalleled scenery. If you don’t have a bike, don’t worry. There are always rentals available in the parking lot. If you’re not a fan of bike riding, you can even walk (or run) the trail. It’s the perfect destination for some world-class sightseeing.
Because above-average seasonal temps are just par for the course in the Okanagan, golf seasons lasts longer out here. If you thought Kelowna golf courses are gorgeous in the summer, you have to see them in the fall. If you’re looking for hotels in Kelowna that offer personalized golf packages, take a look at our personalized packages designed to get you out on the green hassle-free.
If the cooler temps are causing you to look for indoor activities while staying in Kelowna, visit the H2O Adventure Centre. This place is fun for the whole family. Dubbed the largest municipal pool in Canada, H2O offers a wave pool, river run, spray park, water slides, and a surf wave simulator. This action-packed adventure centre is centrally located which means it’s just steps away from many Kelowna hotels.

Some of the hallmarks of fall are harvest, pumpkins, and corn mazes. McMillan Farms offers up all those things and more. Tour the three-acre corn maze, or try your luck in the hay maze.
