About Cathedral Lakes
You’ll find Cathedral Lakes in Canada’s only desert – the Okanagan, sitting at the tip of the Sonoran where British Columbia borders with Washington, USA. With temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius in summer, it’s not the kind of place you’d expect to find in a country known for its ski runs and lush green forests.
The hot, dusty landscape that surrounds Cathedral Lakes makes the park even more magical: perched high above the heat is a wild oasis with seven glacial lakes, blooming meadows and endless snow-capped mountains. And the best part is there’s no need to wait for big tour groups to move along so you can capture it for yourself.
