Lake Osoyoos is surrounded by a stunning landscape of untouched land and vineyards and it is a popular destination in the Okanagan-Similkameen Region of British Columbia. It is especially popular in the summer, when the temperatures are high, the lake water is warm and the vineyards are bursting with grapes.

Lake Osoyoos is described as the warmest freshwater lake in Canada, and while many are glacier fed so that even in the height of summer they are still quite cool, this one heats up to a nice temperature and it is a pleasant area to spend some of your vacation. Water activities are also permitted on this lake so you can not only enjoy the swimming and splashing around, but you can also use your boat or rent a canoe.

The landscape around the lake is a beautiful one, and this view shows exactly both types of landscape that this region is known for the arid desert landscape and the lush wine producing landscape. It seems strange that two distinctive terrains can exist just across a lake from each other, but that is part of what makes this region and this lake so special and so unique.
