The 180-km long Okanagan Valley is nicknamed “The Napa of the North” for the many world-class wineries in the region. Enjoying a sunny, mild microclimate, the Okanagan valley is well-suited for growing grapes, and the many acres of vineyards spreading across terraced hillsides are a serene sight to behold. Harvest time in late Summer and early Fall is a particularly rewarding time to visit. Peach and apricot orchards also dot the landscape and offer visitors to visit and pick their own fruit during the Summer. Visit our Wineries & Orchards Guide for more information.
From boating to alpine skiing, each season presents plenty of exciting things to do in the Okanagan Valley. A true outdoor-lover’s paradise, the region offers miles of mountain hiking trails, kayaking, alpine and cross country skiing, snowboarding, golf, cycling, and sandy lakeside beaches. Sparkling Hill also offers various heli-activities, departing directly from our own helipad at the resort. Summers are sunny and mild with pleasantly cool nights, while winter brings plenty of fresh powder for nearby skiing, snowboarding and winter activities.
