As of early May, some areas of the Thompson Okanagan Region have experienced high water and localized flooding. Currently, all highways throughout the region are open to travel and our tourism businesses are looking forward to a hot and sunny May Long Weekend. As always, travellers are encouraged to check drivebc.ca for real-time road conditions.
The entire region is known for its wonderful wine, stunning golf courses, unique cultural experiences, and there is no shortage of outdoor activities to keep you busy.
Some lake activities may be reduced in parts of the region including the Similkameen, Boundary, and Osoyoos area, and travellers should connect with the local visitor centres for recommendations on the many alternative experiences that are available.
