The Thompson Okanagan region is home to some of the most fragile ecosystems in Canada, which makes for varied and unique wildlife viewing opportunities.
Wildlife highlights here include seeing the Adams River sockeye salmon run, learning about unique creatures in Canada's only desert, and spotting Rocky Mountain wildlife in Mount Robson, one of BC’s premiere parks and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A guided jet boat River Safari in the Monashee Mountains offers spectacular scenery and wildlife viewing, including bear watching. Get close to spawning salmon on a guided river rafting trip on the Fraser River, or see bright red sockeye salmon during the Adams River sockeye run in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park. Interested in bird watching? More than 300 species of birds can be found here, including many at-risk and endangered species, such as the burrowing owl.
