Set at the confluence of the North and South Thompson rivers, against a dramatic backdrop of rolling mountains, Kamloops is ideally situated in the heart of British Columbia.

Here, adventure offerings are abundant throughout the year — thanks to over 2,000 hours of sunshine annually. In and around this vibrant city, remarkable golf, world-class mountain biking and skiing, horseback riding, hiking, heli-Segway adventure tours, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing with Fido draw adventurists out of doors. Beyond the adrenalin rush, a myriad of quaint restaurants and bistros, local galleries, unique shops and vibrant nightlife await in the city’s downtown core. Add to this a prominent Interior First Nations culture, rich ranching history, a thriving local arts scene and flourishing agritourism experiences, and you have the makings of a memorable stay.

Although Kamloops boasts the amenities of an urban centre, the city hasn’t forgotten it roots, with its unhurried lifestyle and warm, welcoming people. Also known as Canada’s Tournament Capital, Kamloops is home to an extensive array of sport-oriented infrastructure for hosting world-class group competitions, events and festivals — making this the perfect destination to let loose and play.
