Kelowna is a city based on Okanagan Lake in the British Colombia district of Canada. It is the 22nd largest city in Canada and remains a popular tourist-orientated city, due to its glorious lakeside views and mountainous landscape.
With what was once a very large ‘Chinatown’ district still based in the city, this results in a vibrant multicultural diversity which visitors have remarked to be amongst the most well-integrated in Canada.
Downtown Kelowna is located right by the Okanagan Lake. Multiple beaches, parks, restaurants and stores are located near the waterfront, and the cultural district within downtown Kelowna is home to several art galleries, museums, sports arenas and several government offices – including the law courts and city hall.
Arriving Kelowna Airport
Kelowna Airport is the major international airport serving British Colombia and is located around 8km northeast of Downtown Kelowna.
The airport is amongst the busiest in Canada and this can sometimes feel like the case when you arrive at the airport. Arrival and Departure areas are poorly laid out and the airport seems to suffer from understaffing, particularly during busy periods.
That said, the airport staff are generally friendly and helpful, and there are a wide choice of restaurants and shopping outlets available to visit upon arrival. Car rental queues also appear to move swiftly and efficiently.
Taxi cabs from Kelowna Airport to the heart of Downtown Kelowna can be expected to cost in the region of $10-$15.
Driving In Kelowna
Kelowna driving can be an immensely rewarding experience. With long, well-maintained highways and major road networks, as you would expect from any Canadian city, traffic is generally uncongested and it is a good driving experience for first-time visitors to Canada and British Colombia..
Parking fees are generally inexpensive, even in the heart of Downtown Kelowna, and most car parks are securely guarded, giving you extra peace of mind if you are using a rental car.
Native Kelowna drivers are (for the most part) patient and friendly towards obvious tourists or first time drivers.
