For locals, it's known as the hub of the north - a industrious mining town with proud Indigenous identity and deep roots in the fur trade. For visitors, it's where the highway ends - a city that evokes images of waterfalls, clear-to-the-bottom lakes, pine-scented forests and mystical howling wolves. Whether you are visiting for the first time, proudly call it home, or have family connections there - Thompson calls you north. Here are 10 reasons why Thompson is such an alluring destination for your next road trip.

That’s an unfortunate oversight and in all honesty, it’s an oversight that I too would have personally made had it been left up to me.
