The Shuswap is a true four-season destination. Each season offers incredible season specific activities, including swimming, skiing, larch walks, salmon runs, cycle touring and more. This is an incredible area to be outside in, and to enjoy nature at its finest, simplest and best!
See the birds! Our lakes are host to an incredible variety and diverse population of indigenous and migratory birds. But don't just turn your eyes to the skies, there's so many things to do and see outside! Additional great outdoor Shuswap activities include biking, horseback riding, paddling, rafting, rock climbing, scuba diving, skydiving, houseboating and skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and other winter pursuits!
And of course, there's simply putting one foot in front of the other... If locals invite you to take a walk around the lake, you'd best plan for an extended vacation. Shuswap Lake's shoreline is 1,000 km. Many trails throughout the Shuswap provide outstanding views of its centrepiece, Shuswap Lake, as well as numerous smaller lakes, waterfalls and rivers.
