Don’t be deceived by the seemingly small town on the side of the highway! Summerland is a hidden gem along Okanagan Lake and with a population of over 11,000 has all amenities to offer. Being nestled in beautiful vineyards, there is no shortage of exquisite wining and dining in the area, most of them offering a stunning lake view. Summerland was heavily populated in the 1860s as visitors settled here on their way north as part of the Cariboo Gold Rush. Summerland’s Bottleneck Drive showcases a delightful wine route with 15 wineries to visit and sample. In addition, Summerland is an artistic community with various galleries and studios in which artists showcase their amazing works. Make sure to stroll around the town to get a glimpse of colourful sculptures and murals…and sample unique creations at our bakeries!
