Freshly fallen snow makes for a perfect photo backdrop to any Instagram or photo album contender. Kelowna boasts stunning parks and nature sites that stand out even when covered in frost. Here are some picture-perfect Kelowna photo spots for you to snap the perfect shot.
- Knox Mountain
This is Kelowna’s largest natural area park, meaning that you can hike around and find the absolute best scenery to get the perfect shot. Search the hashtag #KnoxMountainKelowna on Instagram to get some ideas!
- Mission Hill Winery
Open year-round, Mission Hill Winery offers a ton of great spaces for photo opportunities even in the wintertime. Check out the courtyard, terrace, barrel cellars, or their grand entryway of curved arches held together by a single Keystone.
- Waterfront Park
There are plenty of places along Waterfront to stop and take a picture with the choppy winter waves of the lake in the background. You won’t want to swim when it gets this chilly out but that doesn’t mean the sand and surf won’t work for a photo op.
- Chichester Wetland Park in Rutland
This gem is a local treasure that not many tourists catch on to. In the summer, it’s a flourishing wetland packed with important wildlife. In the winter, you’ll find icicle-decorated trees and frosted ponds galore.
- City Marina
Pose in front of rows of boats moored for the winter with zigzagging docks laced with frost. Not only is it a photogenic spot, but it really captures the beach bum vibe of the city. Walk around the area and you’ll find plenty of statues and landmarks that also make great Kelowna photo ops (yes—including the iconic Ogopogo statue!).
