About Oliver

Nestled in the South end of the Okanagan Valley, Oliver is a small town with a big personality. Dubbed “Wine Capital of Canada” the town of Oliver’s reputation is quickly growing as a vacation destination.

Located between the tourist meccas of Penticton to the North and Osoyoos to the South, visitors and residents alike love the small town feel of Oliver BC.  Oliver has two large grocery stores, numerous specialty shops, great restaurants and cafes, a small movie theatre, two world-class golf courses, numerous parks, and an excellent community center.   The town of Oliver is small enough to be walkable with most of the shops being clustered around Main Street.

Oliver is truly a place to visit in any season with winter sports at Mt Baldy, fruit tree blossoms in the spring, winery tours in the summer, and scarlet red colors and salmon spawning in the fall.  Oliver is beautiful in every season.

Farmland, orchards, and of course wineries surround Oliver, making any drive down the back roads the perfect picture taking opportunity.  Spend the day tasting Oliver’s unique wines and sampling local produce.

Popular Oliver BC activities include winery tours, visiting Rotary Beach on Tuc-El-Nuit Lake, taking a walk or riding a bike down the Hike and Bike Path, and enjoying a stroll through town, shopping at cute shops and dining at one of the cafes or restaurants.
