Lakes, Soaring Mountains and Pristine Wilderness

NORTH THOMPSON - Avola, Barriere, Birch Island, Blackpool, Blue River, Chu Chua, Clearwater, Darfield, Little Fort, Louis Creek, McMurphy, Sun Peaks, Valemount, Vavenby and Wells Gray Provincial Park.

Anchored by the North Thompson River, this region is ideal for backcountry adventure providing access to pristine wilderness, remote fish camps and four-season resorts like Sun Peaks Mountain Resort and Mike Wiegele’s Heli Village. The North Thompson Valley is also home to Mount Robson, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies.

Wells Gray, the largest provincial park in the Thompson Okanagan, features Helmcken Falls, higher than Niagara and plunging 141 metres down a narrow canyon.
