Thompson Okanagan

A region filled with diverse climates, dry deserts and temperate rainforests, rolling hills and bare mountains, and more lakes than what you can count: this is the Thompson Okanagan region. Home to Canada’s warmest freshwater lake, Canada’s only desert, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies and the world-class Okanagan wine region, there’s no shortage of unique places to visit here.

By the way, this is the region you just drive through from Vancouver to Jasper or Banff. It is worth a stop – and much more.
