The North Shuswap is located on the north side of Shuswap Lake and is accessed by the Squilax-Anglemont Road, just off Highway 1. From Skwlax to Seymour Arm, the North Shuswap region includes Lee Creek, Scotch Creek, Celista, Magna Bay, Anglemont, St.Ives, and Seymour Arm.
This waterfall tour will guide you to five incredible waterfalls in the North Shuswap. Dive deep into the backcountry with Seymour River Falls, visit the popular Albas Falls, families love Evelyn Falls, and don’t miss the quick and easy roadside stops of Chase Creek Falls and St. Ives
Start your day at Chase Creek Falls, an easy, family-friendly, 30-minute walk that leads to impressive falls. From there, travel on the Squilax-Anglemont Road to the bustling community of Scotch Creek. Include a nourishing stop for coffee or lunch at our welcoming local shops along the way.
Toward Anglemont, you can enjoy a fun 3km (return) trail that leads to a stunning waterfall, scenic creek, and lush valley at Evelyn Falls. The perfect place to experience the beauty of the North Shuswap forest.
Travel onwards to Albas Falls in Seymour Arm. Be sure to make the quick stop at St.Ives Falls; it is marked with a small wooden sign.
Albas Falls is one of the best in the Shuswap region and is worth the adventure. To get to Albas Falls, visitors must travel 35km on a gravel and sometimes bumpy forest service road (FSR). Experience driving on FSR roads is recommended in British Columbia.
Consider an overnight stay in Seymour Arm! There are accommodations to choose from, including Silver Beach Provincial Park. The impressive and rugged Seymour River Falls is located further along the forest service road.
A truly authentic waterfall experience in the North Shuswap!
