Welcome to the Thompson Okanagan. This region is comprised of two main transportation corridors, the Thompson Nicola and the Okanagan Similkameen:
The Thompson Nicola, follows the Trans Canada Highway in the east from the holiday lakes of the Shuswap and on to the city of Kamloops, where the North and South Thompson Rivers meet. From there the area stretches west to the Fraser and Thompson River Canyon and south along Highway 5 as it leads to Merritt in the Nicola Valley or north to the Yellowhead Hwy 16.
BC's Thompson Nicola country is rich in natural beauty and recreational opportunities. Explore the wilderness, houseboat in the Shuswap, fish for Kamloops trout or raft the Thompson River.
The Okanagan Valley is BC's fruit and wine country. Travel south from Salmon Arm and follow Highways 97 and 3A as they pass by vibrant communities, fertile orchards and azure blue lakes. In the south, Boundary Similkameen, you can follow Highway 3 across the Hope-Princeton Highway to Vancouver or go east to the Kootenays.
This is British Columbia's sun drenched land of plenty. Encompassing the fertile Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys, this area is home to miles of farms, orchards and vineyards. The many smaller lakes that dot the region offer excellent fishing and accommodations, while the sandy beaches of the larger lakes attract sun seekers for a variety of watersports.
As might be expected, the Okanagan and Similkameen can provide visitors with
a broad choice in accommodations and services. And, there is always plenty to
do; golfing, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and more.
