Welcome to the Okanagan, a sun-blessed land of plenty with rolling hills of fruit trees and endless fields of tempting produce.

A visit to the region’s numerous orchards, vineyards, fruit stands, farmers markets, and restaurants create the mouthwatering memories that draw visitors back year after year. Thanks to the temperate climate, the Okanagan is particularly renowned for its wineries and vineyards.

Spas and wellness centres in the Thompson Okanagan include a wide range of treatments and relaxing experiences. Try a vinotherapy massage, visit a ginseng spa, or get energized with a -110°C cold sauna treatment.
