ice cream spots to visit in Kelowna & neighbouring towns

When the weather starts to really warm up in Kelowna, one of my favourite things to do is grab an ice cream cone and wander downtown along the lake. Like a trip to the market, a frozen treat is pretty much a spring and summer time essential. 

As such, I have created a list of the best ice cream shops (as far as I’m concerned) in Kelowna and nearby towns, that are north and south of the city. I may have also thrown in a few gelato options.

When curating this list, I made an effort to include options that were near the lake (I mean, it is the Okanagan) or also an easy stop if en route to a destination. With that being said, a few of these spots are definitely worth the detour.

From Summerland to Sicamous, any of the below spots will satisfy a frozen treat craving. Not to mention, a perfect pairing to spring and summer time.

Whether you are at the beach, shopping, or on a road trip, you can consider yourself covered.
