Changing Conditions

The current travel conditions and regulations can be very fluid, and as a result, can change fairly quickly. Updates will be monitored by North Thompson Valley and our businesses/business partners but we encourage potential visitors to stay as up-to-date as possible when planning a trip. Also, visitors are recommended to become acquainted with cancellation policies of bookable experiences as there is no uniform standard during this time.

The North Thompson Valley is a beautiful wilderness region, that is composed of many incredible climates. During the hot summer months, there is a risk of wildfires. To report a wildfire or irresponsible behaviour that could start a wildfire in British Columbia, please call 1 800 663-5555 or (*5555 from a cell phone) as soon as possible. Information from the public is crucial to the effectiveness of response.
