The tiny town of Osoyoos is big on adventure. Travelers to this outdoor wonderland will find plenty to do, see and experience any time of year. From canoeing in Osoyoos Lake, to biking and hiking the nearby trails, to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing—there’s likely something for everyone in this quiet Canadian getaway.
Culture-loving visitors can stop by the town’s art gallery, where local artisans display handmade work. And wine-sipping tourists can embark on one of the popular tours through nearby vineyards. Warmer months bring travelers to the relaxing shores of Osoyoos Lake, while colder months mean cozying up to a fire after a day out navigating frozen mountain terrain. The town even offers year-round access to unmatched stargazing and incredible birdwatching, making it an ideal destination in any season.
Roughly 5,000 people call Osoyoos, stationed in Canada’s only desert, home. Osoyoos is located two kilometers from the Canada-U.S. border, just north of Washington State. It is 14 miles from the Oliver Airport.
