This is Vernon

Anytime is the perfect time of year to travel to the friendly city of Vernon, British Columbia. Surrounded by multi-coloured lakes and snow-capped mountains, Vernon has outdoor adventure, history, culture, plenty of places to relax and recharge, and delicious surprises.

Explore our endless mountain and lakeside trails, where raptors soar over ancient grasslands. Taste the flavour of our home at our boutique wineries, craft cidery, craft brewery, meadery and award-winning distillery.

Enjoy the stunning views as you explore our grassland and lake trails by foot or by bike. Soak up summer on our sun-drenched beaches then come back in the winter and enjoy a winter wonderland sought after by visitors from around the world. The cooler weather just means a change to warmer clothes. Enjoy hot air balloons and snow sculptures at the Vernon Winter Carnival or head up the mountain for some cool fun.
