Falkland Area

Welcome to the Shuswap’s little wild west!

The country charm goes well beyond our enchanting scenery – no matter what time of year you visit, we’ll show you our best country hospitality!

Come relax in this small, tranquil community, where life is full and the pace is deliciously relaxed. Falkland is a settlement of over 800 residents situated near Highway 97‚ halfway between Kamloops and Vernon. It’s recognized as a ranching community, but forestry, small business, and exceptional retirement amenities are all part of the story here.

Drive from Salmon Arm to Falkland through the scenic Salmon Valley, where you will discover a peaceful rural setting. Stop at the small community of Silver Creek to explore our heritage buildings and displays.

Try traveling south of Salmon Arm on Highway 97B through Ranchero and west to Gardom Lake, an ideal spot for fishing and picnicking for the whole family. Or continue further south on Highway 97B and take the Deep Creek Road, where dairy farming is fast becoming the main economy.

Falkland is home to the worldrenowned Falkland Stampede every year on the May long weekend. Hang on for eight seconds and you could win a belt buckle!

Your eyes will twinkle at the fun possibilities at December 1 Christmas Light-up and Falkland Family Christmas Party. Visit and step back in time at Falkland Heritage Park and Museum’s heritage days. And be sure to discover more of Falkland and the surrounding area’s offerings, including opportunities for fishing, hiking and biking,snowshoeing, and more!
