Top Things to Do in the Shuswap This Summer

Top Things to Do in the Shuswap This Summer

I may be a little bit biased, but living in the Shuswap is the absolute best! There is so much to see and do, every season, but I particularly enjoy the warmer summer months the most. Whether you live here, are passing through or are on an extended stay, you can’t go wrong with these top ten things to do in the area!  

1.    Relax at Canoe Beach - There is a large grassy area, a shady beach great for swimming, and plenty of picnic tables to share meals with friends and family. There is also a concession stand, volleyball court, and playground.

2.    Walk to Margaret Falls in Harold’s Provincial Park - An absolutely stunning waterfall, accessible by a variety of trails in the Provincial Park.

3.    Attend the annual Roots and Blues Festival – grab your boots and lawn chair, then sit back and enjoy the music!

4.    Rent a boat and get out on the lake – Fun Fact! Sicamous is known as the 'Houseboat Capital of Canada'. Located in the Shuswap, between Mara Lake and Shuswap Lake, some 200 houseboats are rented out annually! You can rent boats by the hour, for the day or even overnight for a unique experience.

5.    Visit DeMille’s Farm Market – Pick up an assortment of locally grown produce, say hi to the animals, grab a burger from The Yukon Smash and browse their selection of BC wines, beers and spirits at The Liquor Coop.

6.    Golf – Take in the beautiful scenery with a round of golf at Shuswap National, Hyde Mountain or the Salmon Arm Golf Course.

7.    Take a walk along the Salmon Arm Wharf - It is one of the region’s most popular attractions. It is situated on Shuswap Lake and is 440 feet long! It holds the title of ‘Largest Wooden Wharf in British Columbia and Canada’ AND the title of ‘Largest Wooden Wharf in North America’. 

8.    Visit the most Northern winery in BC - Larch Hills, considered a “cool climate” vineyard, because of its location, you can sample their awesome wine line-up, enjoy the patio, and even catch some live music events.

9.    Visit the R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum - The Shuswap's largest heritage destination!

10. Eat pie from Shuswap Pie Company – A staple in the Salmon Arm downtown core! BC is known for its delicious local fruit, so this means extra fresh and delicious tasting pies are found here!
