You can’t really say you know British Columbia until you’ve travelled the Thompson Okanagan region of the province. A series of gentle mountain ranges rolls between the Thompson Plateau in the west and the Shuswap Highlands to the east, then rises dramatically in the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains in the Kootenays. This provides a wide range of recreation and outdoor adventure activities, particularly golfing, camping, Canoeing, hiking, biking, and offroad 4×4 touring in summer, and winter offers endless snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and both downhill and cross-country skiing. The South Okanagan also has Canada’s only true desert environment, near Osoyoos close to the US border.
