Osoyoos in Summer

(1 of 1 activities)

Set against stunning Osoyoos Lake and surrounded by arid desert and grasslands, visitors come to Osoyoos for water activities, golf, hiking and cycling in summer, and for downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. The call of the outdoors is irresistible here. Our tip for Osoyoos: About 8km west of town on Hwy 3, you’ll find Spotted Lake, a unique natural phenomenon that hold significance to the local First Nations community. In the hot summer sun, the lake's water begins to evaporate, causing its high mineral content to crystallize and leave white-rimmed circles of green on the water. Although access to the lake is restricted, you’ll get excellent views of this natural wonder as you approach from the highway.

Overnight in Osoyoos

Overnight in a Superior level hotel, such as the Watermark Beach Resort. Superior Hotels are perfect for travelers wanting great value plus more upscale accommodations. Exceptional service, location, and quality characterize these properties.
