A Salmon Arm getaway combines outstanding wilderness scenery, endless recreation, and top-notch urban amenities – all enriched by a friendly, warm, and welcoming community. Enjoy unique boutique shopping, cozy bistros, theatres, and open-air venues. Farmers’ markets, and specialty food shops feature locally grown and organic options for your culinary pleasure.
Walking and hiking trails are plentiful in and around town – a stroll along Canada’s longest wooden inland curved wharf is a must! There are many more trails within minutes of the city centre – for walking, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, snowshoeing, and XC skiing. Snowmobilers can head to Fly Hills for 200 km of sled trails. Cyclists will love riding our winding, low-traffic roads, and the natural scenery is outstanding.
