Spring is one of the best reasons for creating a new adventure bucket! At the dawn of the new season, we sit down and dream up our Shuswap to-do list as a family. We are so fortunate to enjoy such an array of hidden gems, spectacular scenery, terrific trails, and local secrets right at our…
Beautiful. Casual. Down-to-earth.
Far from ordinary and closer than you think, welcome here. West of the Rockies, east of the Pacific, and north of the Okanagan, where Canada’s longest highways meet, is the Shuswap; a region of eight distinct and enchanting communities that flow together like the gentle waters of our namesake, Shuswap Lake.
The heart of the traditional territories of the Secwepemc, the “meeting of the waters”, the Shuswap is a place of gathering. We celebrate the pairing of meaningful experiences. Cycle to a vineyard or paint at the pub, paddle to the park, or hike to the hot spring. We live to explore. And every day with us means you’ll find a little more.
Your quest begins here. Meet our hosts and our guides, our chefs, brewmasters and vintners, our farmers, producers and shop owners. Immerse yourself in the stories told by our musicians, artists and actors, artisans and crafters. Meander our maps, our rivers and valleys, our mountains and meadows, our beaches, belvederes, parks and trails.
The Shuswap is yours to discover year-round. We look forward to meeting you here time and again.
