Best Places to take Pictures in West Kelowna

 

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

 

Sunset behind Mt Boucherie

You can capture the sun setting behind Mt Boucherie from several spots. The most assessable spots would be along Boucherie Rd at one of the wineries.

 

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.

I love hikes with views of Okanagan Lake. Luckily, there are no shortage of those around the Okanagan! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is Mt Boucherie in West Kelowna. It’s an extinct volcano and you can explore both sides. It has amazing views of the city and surrounding mountains and lake. We took the Eain Lamont Trail to get to this viewpoint, although it’s also accessible via the Boucherie Rush Trail from the top. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #explorewestkelowna #visitwestkelowna #visitwestside #explorekelowna #visitkelowna #hikebc #hikekelowna #hiketheokanagan #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #wwhmember #hikelikeagirl #sheexplores #hikingviews #pnwcollective #lovepnw #okanaganlake #okgn #okanagansummer #whyihike #hikemore #exploremore #freshairandfreedom #ylw #okanaganvalley #okanaganviews #hikemoreworryless #lovetheview #beautifulbc

Valley Views from top of Rose Valley Regional Park

Hikers are rewarded with jaw dropping photo opportunities in this park. Whether it be the serene lake reservoir or the panoramic views of the cities of West Kelowna or Kelowna, the trek up will not disappoint. Access the trail head from the parking lot on Westlake Rd.

 

 

Gellatly Bay Waterfront

From sunrises and winter storms to fall colours and water play activities, the sparkling waters of our waterfront are often captured – no matter what the season.
