A little bit about the city: Kelowna

Located in British Columbia, Canada, and on the shore of the beautiful lake Okanagan, Kelowna is a city just east of Vancouver, without the Vancouver price tag! If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, you will be spoilt for choice in Kelowna. Residents can enjoy hiking in the mountains, water sports on the lake and a nearby ski resort offers a ski and snowboarding paradise. There are several neighbourhoods in Kelowna, but Glenmore is known for accepting newcomers to the city, and is also perfect for families, although there are many other neighbourhoods to choose from if you’re looking for a more young and fun feel.

Keep Calm and waka waka...
