Thompson Okanagan | Travel & Tourism Information Guide

Travel BC’s Thompson Okanagan Tourist Region. Famous for its orchards, vineyards and wildly varied landscape. Whether you're exploring the wilderness, house boating in the Shuswap, fishing for Kamloops trout, rafting the Thompson River or relaxing in BC's fruit and wine country, Okanagan Valley, where you can checkout the local wineries or stop at a roadside fruit stand offering organically grown cherries, peaches, apples, apricots, and other fruits.

Travel to the highest mountain, in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson, 3954 m (12972 feet), as is a waterfall twice the height of Niagara Falls and explore Canada's only true desert environment.

Each year, outdoor enthusiasts flock to the Thompson Okanagan to hike, cross-country ski, snowshoe, fish, golf, kayak, canoe, camp, horseback ride and view wildlife. Many smaller lakes that dot the region offer excellent fishing and accommodations, while the sandy beaches of the larger lakes attract sun seekers for a variety of water sports.
