Oliver has a wonderful claim to fame as the “Wine Capital of Canada”. It is located south of Penticton and just north of Osoyoos, about 25 kilometres north of the USA/Canada border. The Kettle Valley Rail Trail comes in just behind the very helpful visitor’s centre – drop by and say hi to the staff – they are very informative and friendly!
Located in Canada’s only desert, Oliver has plenty of sunshine and hot summer days – it also provides some of the best rated wines in Canada and the world! Oliver hosts a wonderful Fall Festival of the Grape as well as a Fall Art Show.
Oliver, a popular destination with it’s award winning wineries and warm climate has a wide variety of accommodation from delightful campgrounds and motels to luxurious resort stays. If you are visiting in the peak months of July and August it may pay to reserve ahead of time.
