Fall is one of the best seasons for visiting a Kelowna hotel. The air is fresh and the leaves are crisp. As the days get shorter, locals and tourists begin to savour each minute outdoors before the first snowflake lands. With all the beautiful leaves changing colour, it truly is a magical time. To keep your fall trip effortless, we’ve compiled some great travel-friendly tips.
The average temperature in Kelowna during October and November can vary drastically, so it’s a good idea to get familiar with the local weather report. Although storms and natural disasters are extremely rare in the Okanagan, it may be a good idea to purchase travel insurance. If the weather takes a turn for the worse, and you find yourself in an unforeseen circumstance, having the option to reschedule your trip to a Kelowna hotel for a later date is worth the additional fee.
Autumn weather can be a little unpredictable. Some days may feel like the remnants of summer while others resemble the beginning of winter. Even after keeping a close eye on the weather reports, the temperature can shift with little to no warning.
To be on the safe side, prepare for cooler weather by packing clothing appropriate for layering. To avoid an overstuffed suitcase, wear your bulkiest outerwear on the plane. Now you can use the extra room in your suitcase to pack a few extra sweaters.
Because of its location, Kelowna plays host to many different activities that aren’t available in other parts of the country. Because of the mild climate, some golf courses remain open for tee times well into October and sometimes November. Green fees are also cheaper during the off-season.
And don’t forget to visit some local wineries. Open to the public year-round, wineries are the perfect reason to get outside and see the local countryside and beautiful fall colours. Enjoy some of the best views in Kelowna while sipping tasty wine and sampling some of the best local cuisine.

Discounted room rates are one of the biggest perks of traveling to Kelowna during the off-season months. If you’re looking to get away on a budget, planning a trip during the shoulder season is the way to go. Alternatively, if you’re not too worried about the accommodation fare, go ahead and splurge on that hard-to-book King Spa Suite. Because of the season, room availability is also easy to come by.
