Enjoy Vernon, a small vibrant city set in the heart of Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Surrounded by grassy hills and tranquil lakes that invite you outdoors, this is a playground for adventure travelers, with seasons around the year offering diverse experiences. Apart from the pebbled beaches, botanical gardens, and powder white ski slopes, there are boutique wineries, cattle farms, heritage ranches, and expansive orchards that dot the landscape. Scenic trails offer hiking, biking, and horse-riding excursions into the canyons and forests around, which present panoramic vistas of the Canadian countryside. The region’s numerous lakes serve as wonderful locations for leisurely watersports and picnics. Weekly farmers’ markets showcase Vernon’s bountiful produce, and the various tasting trails offer myriad gourmet indulgences. In town, dozens of heritage buildings testify to the gold rush of the 1850s, while historic murals and outdoor theaters highlight the arts. Home to the indigenous Okanagan people, Vernon can offer an introduction to their nsyilxcən language!
