There is no doubt, West Kelowna has some pretty stunning vantage points, our Instagram feed can attest to it on a daily basis. We also have some interesting architecture, pieces of history and quirky items that people like to photograph.

We have compiled a list of so of the top place and items that people photograph the most. This list is no way complete, but is a starting point for any photo buffs out there.

 

The Bell Tower at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery

The architecture of Mission Hill winery is impressive and the bell tower is the only known winery bell tower in the world. It is an impressive 12 storeys tall and the ringing of the bells can be heard throughout the day. More information on the bells of Mission Hill Family Estate can be found on their website.   http://www.missionhillwinery.com/estate_winery/architecture/belltower.aspx

Sunrise over Mt Boucherie

You can capture the sun rising over Mt Boucherie from several spots in Glenrosa. The most assessable spots would be on either side of Hwy 97. The road to the north of the hwy is called Glenrosa Rd and there is a small park where you can set up your camera or to the south along the wide shoulder of Gellatly Rd.

 

The Vineyards of Quails’ Gate Estate Winery

If you have seen photos of the Okanagan Valley or of wine country, chances are it included the vineyards of Quails’ Gate. These picturesque vineyards slope gently down towards Lake Okanagan and overlook Green Bay.

Boucherie Rush Trail

The Boucherie Rush Trail has become the ‘must do’ trail in the Okanagan. Round trip to the top and back is 6 km, with views around every corner. Access to this trail is off a small parking lot on East Boundary Rd.
