The City of Kelowna, the gateway to the Okanagan Valley. Situated in the heart of the BC Interior, Kelowna is home to more than 20 unique wineries, miles of beautiful parkland, and several sandy beaches that provide wonderful opportunities for swimming, boating, water-skiing, wind-surfing, and fishing. Even Kelowna's Main street ends at the lake. There are over 450 existing geocaches in the area with another 120 new caches being placed for this occasion.
