Kamloops City Guide
Answer the call of the wild and visit Kamloops, the Tournament Capital of Canada: it's here where the Thompson rivers, mountains, highways, and wilderness collide in the BC Interior. Deep in the heart of cowboy country, Kamloops has a semi-arid climate and ideal weather for sport, wilderness and outdoor recreation!
Western hospitality awaits you at a Kamloops hotel, motel, B&B, or resort. Huddle-up with your pets in ranching country at a Heritage, four-star or ‘green’ hotel and explore the wild side of the BC Interior!
There’s snow up yonder at Canada’s 3rd largest ski resort and on nearby Harper Mountain where the skiing is awesome. Check out the size of those snowboarding boxes, jumps and rails and hang on tight at the Tube Park too!
Live on the wild side in Kamloops near lakes and provincial parks in the heart of the Thompson Valley. Buy a single-family home in the North Shore, a custom-built lakefront house on Big Bar Lake or a log cabin with a mountain view!
Grab a bite with the team between games, dine to a romantic sunset view of the Thompson Valley or laugh up a storm at the dinner theatre. There aren’t many places where you can go rock hounding and fossil hunting after lunch!
Feel the adrenaline at amateur sporting events hosted at the Kamloops Tournament Capital Centre. You can also ride the ‘Spirit of Kamloops’ railway, attend a Pow Wow and other festivals or visit the BC Wildlife Park.
Wine in the winter sounds good if it’s at the Icewine Festival hosted every year at Sun Peaks Ski Resort just 45-minutes from Kamloops. Plan to attend and sample clean, crisp icewines from over 20 Okanagan wineries.
Pack your golf bag and play 14 golf courses in the Kamloops area. Warm up at a driving range, challenge yourself on an 18-hole championship course or sharpen your short game on a nine-hole Par-3 ‘pitch-and-putt’ golf course.
