Centuries Ago, The Ice Melted and Turned Water Into Wine
Millions of years ago, massive
glacial ice floes carved out a valley, creating an ideal place
for orchards and wineries. This is the Thompson Okanagan. A land
of contradiction and lush abundance. Wild rivers. And tranquil
lakes. Sheer-walled canyons. And wide open plains.
Peaches, nectarines, plums
and berries. Lush vineyards overflowing with grapes. Why not
take an up-close look at a fascinating process and tour a winery?
In summer, our warm lakes
and white sand beaches make the area a vacation paradise. Stay
at one of the many resorts dotting the lakes. Or rent a houseboat.
Wild River Country
It's not just the fish that
attract visitors. Catch a fantastic whitewater rafting experience
on the Thompson, Fraser, or Adams Rivers.
Saddle up and explore. Follow
a canyon trail. Or round up some wayward cattle. Where you stay
depends on your idea of roughing it. Some guest ranches come
with pools, tennis courts, and spas.
