A landscape as diverse as the adventures within it

Home to the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, Canada's only desert, and sprawling lakes, the Thompson Okanagan's natural wonders are only matched by its active spirit and world-class wine region.

A couple walks through the Liquidity Wines vineyard in Okanagan Falls, BC.

Vast grasslands, towering waterfalls, and verdant valleys set the stage for a vibrant agricultural and culinary scene. Spend the summer months hiking and biking through the region’s rolling hills, or fishing and boating in its glacier-fed lakes. When the temperature drops, head to the mountains for fresh tracks through pillowy champagne powder.

While golf, powder skiing, lake sports, and wine are area mainstays, the region also offers peaceful fishing holes, remote horseback rides, and a selection of farm-fresh culinary treasures. For a truly one-of-a-kind experience, look no further than the Kamloopa Powwow, the largest celebration of Indigenous culture in Western Canada. Relax and revel amidst the orchards, lakes, and vineyards of this southern oasis.
