The Thompson Okanagan is famous for its orchards, vineyards, skiing, golf, deserts, mountains, valleys and everything in between.
The history and culture of the region is strongly tied to the land as Aboriginal peoples moved between hunting and fishing grounds in the summer and pit houses for the winter. At first bringing furs to trade, Europeans began to establish cattle ranches, farms, and mining operations. Rich in history, the area offers numerous museums, galleries and heritage sites that detail this colourful past.
Today, golf courses, farms and orchards, ski resorts and vineyards as well as a beautiful and widely varied landscape make the Thompson Okanagan a prime destination for tourism and relocation. Home to the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies, Canada's only true desert, and a waterfall twice as high as Niagra falls, the area boasts something for everyone. Outdoor Enthusiasts flock to the area year round to camp, hike, golf, fish, canoe, kayak, ski, snowshoe and trek through our magnificent outdoors.
