Adventure Awaits

We invite you to go off the grid, get lost and discover the unexpected along the way. Cast a line on trophy stillwater. Be amazed by twisty bike trails and winding hiking paths. Find your alpine escape in the mountains of our own Sun Peaks Resort, or hop on the highway for easy ski trips to Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Silver Star Mountain Resort, and Big White Ski Resort. In the summer, explore our vast backyard, and experience some of our many nearby attractions. Kamloops is a city for every season – a place for families, and urban and rural adventurer.
