Let your curiosity fuel you as you embark on a carefree road trip throughout the Thompson Okanagan Region. Here you will find some of the most diverse outdoor and cultural experiences in North America. Your journeys in and around the region can be a day trip, a week’s holiday, a month-long exploration, or more! Route 97 Route 97 is the principal conveyance corridor throughout the Thompson and the Okanagan. From the United States border right through to the Canadian Rockies, Route 97 connects these diverse and bountiful regions and the travellers who seek to explore them. There’s no better way to embrace the terrain than to hit the highway and take a road trip. Route 97 can take you there. The Thompson The northern half of the region is dominated by the Thompson Valley, ideal for those seeking pristine wilderness and backcountry adventure. Anchored by Kamloops in the south, and home to the majestic Mount Robson in the north, adventure is never far from your fingertips. With an unparalleled landscape and rich First Nations culture, this geologically-diverse area has something for everyone. Super Camping - Thompson Okanagan The Okanagan and Okanagan Corridor Lake Okanagan and Highway 97 is the very heart of this corridor. It is home to Canada’s only desert, over 150 wineries with flourishing vineyards, orchards encircling Okanagan Lake and sweeping valley views. Take your time as you drive Route 97 from the border-town of Osoyoos, through the small agricultural towns in the south, through the urban economic hub and the Okanagan’s biggest city, Kelowna, to the Enderby Cliffs where you can take it all in. The Okanagan is an ideal vacation spot, with sandy beaches and surrounding mountains, whether you’re playing a round of golf, hiking historic trails, or sampling award-winning wine paired with locally-grown produce, the Okanagan has no shortage of experiences to offer. North Thompson-Columbia Icefields Parkway Loop If you’re seeking an authentic wilderness experience, then this is the road trip for you. Take Highway 5 north of Kamloops where pristine beauty awaits. Be amazed by the grandeur of the Helmcken Falls in Wells Gray Provincial Park, and view bears in their natural habitat, river safari style, in Blue River. In the north, make sure you head to Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. Located near Valemount, and part of a UNESCO World Heritage site, it’s sure to exceed all expectations. Gold Country Loop With over 20 provincial parks and protected areas, Gold Country’s diverse landscapes will give you plenty to explore as you head north on Route 97. Featuring glacial shorelines of ancient lakes, grasslands and thick forest, river canyons and mountains, and even hoodoos formed from 200-million-year old volcanic rock. Cowboy lore and pioneer spirit, First Nations heritage and welcoming communities await in Gold Country. Shuswap Loop With over 1,000 km (620 mi) of shoreline along Shuswap Lake, and 22 Provincial Parks to explore, the Shuswap is a haven for summer vacations. Home to the Houseboat Capital of Canada, and the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, taking a road trip through the Shuswap is a definitive Thompson experience. Monashee-Boundary Loop Heading south from Kelowna on Highway 33 or east from Osoyoos on Highway 3 will have you driving through the historic towns of Boundary Country. Take a hike on the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, part of Canada’s iconic Trans Canada Trail which runs through Rock Creek. Be sure to relax in the temperate waters of Christina Lake, the warmest tree-lined lake in BC, before heading north through the Kootenay Rockies. Similkameen Valley Loop Take Highway 3 west from Osoyoos and find yourself in the rugged, rustic, real Similkameen Valley. Trek off the beaten path into the untouched beauty of Cathedral Lakes Provincial Park. You’ll be rewarded with 360-degree views of azure lakes, wildlife, mountain peaks, and arresting beauty. Savour local flavours from this burgeoning wine region, or enjoy some seasonal fruit in the Fruit Stand Capital of Canada. At the most-western point of the loop, Manning Park promises the ultimate camping experience, unplugged from reality and one with nature.
