Canada Immigration and Orientation Tours of the Okanagan Valley, BC

Tours for Potential Immigrants and Newcomers!

The Okanagan Valley is a beautiful place to visit as a tourist or to enjoy as a resident. It is a true 4-season playground.

If you decide to live here and you are new to this area, then it is wise to do your due diligence. Explore where you want to live, who you want to meet or what you can do in this precious spot on the world map.

Olaf Dijkstra can facilitate you with all the above saving you precious time web surfing, making calls and more. He has lived in the Okanagan since 2011. When he immigrated from the Netherlands, he had to learn it the hard way, doing his own due diligence, sometimes having no clue what he was looking for since he wasn’t familiar with Kelowna and area. Since then, he has always been involved in the service industry, building his network and helping others.

Olaf is an experienced tour guide, both provincially and locally. Operating his own successful Airbnb ( helped him to discover the different local areas for his guests. Moreover, a few times a year, he guides European visitors through British Columbia and the western part of Alberta, so he knows what Western Canada has to offer. Besides English, Olaf speaks Dutch, German and a bit of French.

The idea to guide potential new residents around, came to fruition when I asked Olaf to show some of my clients around in the Kelowna area, looking for certain neighbourhoods and good schools. Rom wanted to focus on selling and buying houses for his clients and felt that this would be great, extra value to his clients by offering this service to out of town clients and potential immigrants. And so, Okanagan Orientation Tours was born.

Just to be clear, Okanagan Orientation Tours focuses on the Relocation part: explore different areas to live and work and connect you with people and/or organizations that can help answer your questions on a personal and work level.

Of course, Olaf can add a fun element like wineries, golfing or skiing as well ;-).

If you are interested, please give Olaf a call or text at 1-250-899-0684 or email him at for more information!
