June in Kelowna

Summer officially arrives towards the end of June, bringing with it lots of fun and sun. Things start to pick up as the month progresses, with summer being the busiest season for visitors in Kelowna and the Okanagan—if there are specific accommodations, restaurants, activities, or events you want to visit or take part in, we recommend making reservations or booking them as early as possible to guarantee your spot.

Read on to find out more about what you can discover and what to expect in and around Kelowna when visiting at this time of year.

The opportunity for outdoor adventure is abundant in June, with all sorts of attractions and activities to get the adrenaline pumping, like parasailing, ziplining, flyboarding, and more. Those who prefer their adventure at a slower pace can go paddleboarding, biking, or hiking…or enjoy the best of the Okanagan at one of the area's many patios, especially those with sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, Okanagan Lake, or local vineyards.

Rentals, activities, and tours can book up quickly during the summer months, so give yourself as much time as possible when making your plans. Our Community Specialists at the Kelowna Visitor Centre can recommend activities and assist with bookings.
