Hiking trips in the Thompson Okanagan are particularly rewarding. It's common to traverse several geoclimatic zones on even short hiking trails.
Trails suit all skill levels and both short, easy nature walks, as well as strenuous backcountry hikes. There are also opportunities for heli-hiking in the Cariboo Mountains near Valemount.
Two of BC's biggest and most celebrated wilderness parks are found in the Thompson Okanagan: Wells Gray Provincial Park and Mount Robson Provincial Park (home to the popular Berg Lake Trail). Many other parks, such as Cathedral Provincial Park and Monahsee Provincial Park, also have hiking trails to explore.
The variety of plants and landscapes here supports a corresponding variety of wildlife. Moose, deer, bears, mountain goats, caribou and more call the region home, and wildflower-filled meadows blanket the slopes of many alpine areas in summer.
