Osoyoos is a unique section of British Columbia with a landscape that more closely resembles the arid regions of Arizona and New Mexico than some of the greener territories of British Columbia. South Okanagan is home to one of the biggest concentrations of rare species in the entire country, and that factor is mainly because of the sheer diversity of the land's habitats. When travellers visit Okanagan Valley, they can stay at the Walnut Beach Resort, enjoy the beautiful outdoors and even take a guided night tour of the arid area at the Desert Centre of Osoyoos.
When guests arrive at the upscale resort, they are only minutes away from this prestigious nonprofit organization that aims to protect the land and species that inhabit it. Visitors should try to arrive at the facility before the sun falls so that they can tour some of the exhibits beforehand, many of which provide insight to the land's animals and plantlife, giving patrons some background before heading outdoors.
One of the best ways to explore the desert is along the centre's 1.5-kilometre boardwalk, which leads guests on a journey beside rare ecosystems and thriving desert creatures. Osoyoos hotel guests can tour this site during the day on their own and then enjoy an eye-opening guided stroll under the starry night sky. Travellers can reserve rooms now to make sure they catch the event on August 25.
