Explore the Shuswap

The Shuswap region of British Columbia home to four beautiful Canadian seasons, caters to active and healthy lifestyles and has an amazing outdoor playground. Those who take the time to stop inevitably fall in love with the quaint “Shuswap Charm” of it’s friendly residents and businesses and enjoy settling into the pace of our “Shuswap Time.” Nestled between Calgary and Vancouver, off of the Trans Canada Highway #1, it is a community that is often overlooked as people cruise by.

Our Trails

The Shuswap Trails are an amazing and expansive network of trails and parks to explore for a hike, bike, run, bird watching, snowshoe, cross-country ski, sledding, snowmobiling, ATV-ing and more.  All four seasons have something to enjoy, with a variety of terrain for beginner to advanced adventurists!  Explore the: Shuswap Trails

Our Parks

The Shuswap Parks maintain our many green spaces, in over 54 hectares of park land that includes beaches, developed natural and passive parks, horseshow and playing fields, lawn bowling, marinas, wharfs and walking trails. We love watching how the city and local community groups collaborate to continue to improve our parks and build new ones!

The Lake

The Shuswap Lake is the center point of a large stream and lake network with approximately 526 streams and lakes interconnecting. There is plenty of terrain to explore for a variety of water adventures. At the first signs of spring or fall, explore smaller surrounding lakes with kayaks and canoes. In the heat of the summer, Shuswap Lake comes to life with houseboats and motorized watersports. Or if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, enjoy the stunning lake views as you laze about on one of our many beaches.
