Location Information

Cradled within tree-lined mountain slopes, dramatic cliffs (the world famous Skaha Bluffs), and bordered by two pristine lakes, Penticton offers natural beauty all year round. The semi-arid desert climate provides more than 2000 hours of sunshine each year to complement the myriad of cultural activities, international events, regional festivals, and good old-fashioned relaxation.
