Our Story

We would like to extend our warmest welcome to Penticton, our beautifully authentic city nestled between Lake Okanagan and Skaha Lake in British Columbia. The name Penticton means ‘a place to stay forever’ and once you visit you will know why.

Penticton isn’t just a destination. It’s an experience. It’s uncovering something new around every corner. It’s unwittingly walking into one of 70 plus award-winning wineries, then another, then maybe another. It’s stunning lakes, world-class trails, and living the foodie life, farm-to-table. It’s beautiful bike rides, alluring beaches, and a rich, charming culture. It’s skiing – both behind a boat and down a slope. It’s some of the best winter activities this Province has to offer. It’s doing it all or doing nothing. It’s something for everyone, it’s here, and it’s waiting to be discovered.
