North Shuswap

Unpretentious and quirky Vacation dreams come true on the north side of Shuswap Lake.

Travel through the North Shuswap’s small communities and immerse yourself in distinct stories – authentic and charming in their quiet rural existence.

The North Shuswap offers an impressive array of great sights and activities – such as the incomparable Sockeye Salmon run, an astounding feat of nature! Tsútswecw (pronounced choo-chwek) Provincial Park, is a fascinating place to visit any time of the year. The Secwepemc name chosen for the park translates to ‘many rivers.’ 

In winter, the North Shuswap’s nearby Crowfoot slopes beckon to snowmobilers and skiers looking for powder. Moderate climate and great terrain create an exceptional mountain playground. The Winter Festival held Family Day Weekend in February offers iconic Canadian winter activities - like outdoor skating at Farrell’s Field Skating Rink in Celista. Up to a truly unique experience? Watch the outdoor bed races - as teams race their custom themed beds along Squilax-Anglemont Hwy. starting from the Hub in Scotch Creek.
