Wild landscapes and welcoming communities make you feel like you’re at the edge of civilization when you explore the Lower North Thompson Valley. Mild, dry Thompson Country is a popular destination for trout fishing, mountain biking, and ranch vacations.
The area’s largest community, Kamloops, has a thriving arts and culture community, and hosts numerous sport championships. Visitors can ski powder at family-friendly Sun Peaks Resort, golf, ride cowboy-style at Jandana Ranch, head to Barriere for a rodeo or join the annual Kamloopa Powwow, one of the largest celebrations of Indigenous culture and heritage.
Adventure awaits along the roads and trails less travelled. Allow yourself to be lured by the Lower North Thompson’s natural wonders and panoramic beauty.
