The Thompson Okanagan's endless sunny summer days allow wineries, markets, gardens, farms and orchards to flourish – it's also ideal for waterslides and amusement parks.
Interspered among the vineyards, lakes and fields are museums and historic sites that highlight Aboriginal culture, railways, pioneer farms and more.
Visit a winery on a wine tour or learn about the desert and Aboriginal culture at the Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre. Pick up fresh fruit and veggies at a roadside stand or stop by Historic O'Keefe Ranch for a taste of history. The Kettle Valley Steam Railway is a fun way to take in the scenery and live entertainment at the same time.

An Okanagan must. This family attraction now bigger! better! Plus booking corporate & group parties. Don't miss 'trapdoor starts' & racing lines unique to Oyama. Total of 7 zipline rides... some fast (clocked 85 km/hr), some high, some long with 180º panoramic lakeviews over Kalamalka Lake plus vineyard vistas over Wood Lake. The shuttle, tours & rope bridges are fun in themselves. 2-3 hrs, a thrill for every age. Best of all, Oyama Zipline is central & within 20 minutes of 20 beaches & parks. Scenic & pleasant routes so typically Okanagan. Within minutes of restaurants, patio bars, farmers' markets, art galleries, shopping.
