Tourism Vernon

There’s so much to discover in the Okanagan – and Vernon is the perfect place to find it all! Hiking and biking trails, colour-defying lakes, sandy beaches, world-class resorts, renowned golf courses, bounty beyond compare including world-class Okanagan wineries, and legendary champagne powder.

Hike and bike in the spring and watch the valley come alive with colour. In the summer, be sure to tour our farms, orchards, wineries, and lakes. Fall is the perfect time to vacation in Vernon and visit our unique shops, take in a play, luxuriate at a resort, and taste our bountiful harvest. Once the snow flies, strap on your skis, snowboards and snowshoes and come explore our mountain and valley.

Rolling hills, majestic mountains, endless 360-degree views and a valley filled with friendly people combine to create the perfect backdrop for your visit to Vernon – any time of year. Whether your idea of an ideal getaway runs to sandy toes on sunny beaches, tasting trails during harvest season, snow-flying thrills on adventure-filled slopes, or energizing hikes during the season of renewal, Vernon has something for you.

Vernon is the ultimate four-season playground – come and discover why for yourself.

Ribbons of Green

Greater Vernon is the official Trails Capital of BC!

The Regional District North Okanagan, in partnership with the Ribbons of Green Trails Society, successfully named Greater Vernon as the official Trails Capital of BC through the Canadian Registrar of Trademarks. Trail-building efforts in Greater Vernon has been a decades-long process involving countless volunteers and organizations. Thank you to all the trail champions in our region!

Anchored by multi-use pathways that connect Okanagan, Kalamalka, and Swan Lakes, Greater Vernon is surrounded on the north and west sides by the historic Grey Canal Trail, the Okanagan Rail Trail extending south, and the High Rim Trail reaching to the east and south. Residents and visitors enjoy a plethora of major recreational and active transportation routes within the Greater Vernon Area.

The trail network is truly multi-seasonal. Between Sovereign Lake, Silver Star, and Predator Ridge, the area also boasts many options for alpine skiing, cross-country, and snowshoeing. Some multi-use paths are cleared in winter, and many trails can be used in winter conditions with appropriate footwear.

The Regional District of North Okanagan has partnered with Ribbons of Green to pursue the Official Mark under the Canadian Trademarks Act.

Vernon is home to amazing trail networks – find all the trail information on Tourism Vernon’s trails page.
