Orchards of all shapes and sizes line the shores of Lake Chelan.
Steeped in a unique, temperate micro-climate, this deep lake cools the hot summer days and warms the air temperature in winter. Numerous mountain peaks in the Cascades capture snow in the winter that melts into Lake Chelan and helps irrigate the productive fruit orchards in the lowlands. With nearly 10,000 acres devoted to growing fruits, the Lake Chelan region is known for producing apples of exquisite color and shape. Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Fuji, and Honeycrisp are a few of the many varieties grown in the valley.
Partake in an educational Apple Walk through our businesses, learning about the many apple varieties that are grown! Collect 10 stamps from local businesses and bring your sheet to the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce (Chelan or Manson) by October 5to enter to win a prize!
