The Best of Summer in Kelowna | Nic Collar

Friday, September 30, 2016 2:00 PM by Nic Collar


As long hot summer days slip slowly into warm autumn breezes, we reflect on serious summer fun in Kelowna. Whether its hanging on the lake or exploring the best hiking trails, Kelowna truly holds something for every one to enjoy during any season. 

When you're royalty there isn't much time to enjoy the places you visit.

Will and Kate spent a whirlwind 11 days touring the West Coast - but only spent about one day in each city. They were only able to spend a small portion of a day in Kelowna, visiting UBC Okanagan and Mission Hill Winery before jetting off to Whitehorse.


The Alcock Family operates their beautiful organic farm in South East Kelowna. Find them at the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market this Fall on Saturdays to buy organic heritage tomatoes and more!

There’s no doubt that summer in Kelowna is coming to an end. The u-pick farms are transitioning from plums and apples to squash and pumpkin, but luckily in Kelowna farm-to-table experiences are still available. So where should you go for farm to table flavours? I have trialed, tested, and definitely approved these three places.

This recipe features a locally distilled and award winning vodka. Urban Distilleries' Spirit Bear Vodka is handcrafted in copper stills in downtown Kelowna undergoing triple distillation for smooth taste. Paired with Kelowna apple juice and Okanagan cherries, this cocktail is sure to be delicious!
