When travelling in or out of Osoyoos BC you must stop at one of the Look Outs. It is so spectacular to see the entire valley with both the USA and Canadian lands along the lake. The road itself is very steep with lots of corkscrew turns and is not for the faint of heart. If I had a choice... More

We stopped as we were driving out of town. It's an easy drive, very close to town, and the view is stunning. Do read the signs though. We stopped at what seemed like the viewpoint - and the view was great - but then when we drove on a fraction further we saw the sign saying the lookout was just... More

This lookout is definitely worth a special drive up the mountain just to spend some time at the lookout and enjoy the AWESOME view over Osoyoos, the valley, and looking over into the USA. Don't miss it!!! :-) We have only stopped in in November, I imagine in summer when the orchards and vineyards would all be green would be... More

I was surprised that they moved the view point to a higher level but was pleased to see that it gave a broader view of the Canadian and American landscape. It is absolutely breathtaking! It is a must see for all visitors!!!

Well, except for the traffic crawling by on the hairpin turn and a lot of people taking selfies, this is one spectacular view of the Interior Plateau and the Coast Mountains from 4000 ft over the valley.. Doesnt get much of a better view than this.

So easy to drive up the hill on the way out of town, or simply as a quick car ride after dinner on a starry night. What was great about this was that it was so close to town for such a great view. Make sure you read the signs - there is one that seems like it's the view... More

Worth driving 10 minutes up Highway 3 East to get a beautifull view over the lower Okanagan Valley and Osoyoos. Choose the hrs just before the sunset, the colours are very intense. Bring your camera too.
