A different breed of adventurer follows a different kind of bliss at farms, wineries and restaurants throughout the Thompson Okanagan.

Here foodies see the progress of their meals from field and orchard to plate. Wine enthusiasts sample vintages, talk with winemakers and walk among the vines. Then it all comes together on the menus of renowned chefs who prove that fresh is best.

And between the extremes of backcountry and food country, the region provides exactly the right environment for a host of other leisure activities. Golf course designers revel in the varied terrain, creating championship challenges for players of every skill level. Spas and wellness centres pamper and rejuvenate. Families return to lakeside resorts year after year — generation after generation — building lifelong memories. Galleries host exhibits of regional, national and international works while musicians, actors and dancers light up the stage in dinner theatres, performing arts centres and even a farmer’s field. You’ll find peace in country retreats, excitement on city streets and your ideal getaway in the Thompson Okanagan.
