Outdoor adventure and activities are here in Kamloops
No matter what your need is for activities, Kamloops has something to satisfy them. Our rugged terrain of sand and rocky bluffs make the area famous for mountain biking, wildlife viewing, rock hounding, hiking and — best of all — our panoramic views of mountain ranges, lush agriculture fields, soft sunsets over Kamloops Lake, and the meeting of the North and South Thompson Rivers right in the heart of the city.
During the spring, summer and fall our sunny skies welcome you to award-winning golf courses and spectacular fishing and water sport opportunities. In the winter months, explore the uncrowded slopes of Canada’s third-largest ski resort, or enjoy cross-country skiing, snowmobiling or snowshoeing through the grasslands and on forested trails.
