Hiking trips in the Thompson Okanagan are particularly rewarding. It's common to traverse several geoclimatic zones on even short hiking trails.
There are trails for all skill levels, from short, easy nature walks to strenuous backcountry hikes. For easy to access hikes, head to Sun Peaks and Silver Star resorts and take the chairlift to alpine trails. 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.
