There’s a whole lot more to the Okanagan than the watersports of summer and the skiing of winter. In fact, some say autumn is the best time of year to book a hotel in Kelowna to enjoy the mild days, stunning landscapes filled with reds and yellows of the season, and all the wonderful ways you can enjoy both in nature.
Check out some of these destinations locals visit and see for yourself why everyone falls in love with the Okanagan in autumn.
Carved out of an old apple orchard, Elysium Gardens spreads across three acres of meticulously kept land. This is one destination you’ll want to spend hours exploring. After meandering through the designer displays and the Zen-like Japanese garden, sit and relax in a handcrafted gazebo.
Spend some time gazing out at the burnt orange, flaming red, and yellowing shrubbery and trees. Although awe-inspiring year round, the Elysium Gardens are truly something to see in the Fall season.
Mission Creek, the biggest contributor to Okanagan Lake, is home to one of the most-visited parks in Kelowna. If you're staying at a pet-friendly Kelowna hotel, bring your pooch to Mission Creek, home to some of the most scenic hiking trails in the valley. Stretching from the shores of Okanagan Lake to the Mission Creek Falls, you’ll find 26 kilometres’ worth of stunning views, activities, and wildlife. Grab your hiking shoes and hit the trails!
