Map of Thompson Okanagan

Welcome to Thompson Okanagan!

British Columbia's Thompson Okanagan is renowned for its moderate climate and stunning mountain, lake, and desert terrain. The region is also famous for its abundance of freshly-grown fruit—few travellers that venture along these highways can resist the allure of a sweet, juicy Okanagan peach. Grapes are another hot commodity—Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton together have over 50 vineyards and wineries that produce some of the Canada's finest wines. Renting a houseboat on the Shuswap Lakes is an extremely popular activity, with Sicamous being the self-proclaimed Houseboat Capital of Canada. There are music festivals throughout the year, including the Merritt Mountain Music Festival in July and Salmon Arm's Roots and Blues Festival in August. The desert surrounding Osoyoos is celebrated at the Nk'Mip Desert & Heritage Centre. In winter, several ski resorts—such as Sun Peaks Resort—in the Okanagan offer world-class skiing and snowboarding, plus a variety of other snow sports. Farther north is Clearwater, located at the entrance to Wells Gray Provincial Park.
