Culinary tours in the Thompson Okanagan are the perfect complement to the region's wineries and vineyards.

Explore orchards, farmers markets and roadside fruit stands, along with more than 120 wineries in and around the Okanagan Valley.

Guided culinary tours, such as those from Swallow Tail Tours, can combine gourmet cuisine with cycling or snowshoeing. Try a self-guided farm tour to treat tastebuds to locally-created creamy cheeses, sweet jams and artisan breads year-round.
