Other destinations[edit]


The Shuswap is defined by the four-armed lake of the same name. The region offers unlimited opportunities for cottaging, camping, and boating/watersports. The town of Sicamous proudly declares itself the 'houseboat capital of Canada'.

Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]


  • Craigellachie (pro. cray-gull-ah-key) is home of the 'last spike' in the Canadian Pacific Railway's transcontinental line.


  • Rent a houseboat



Stay safe[edit]

As the Shuswap is 90% Provincial Park and undeveloped, there is almost zero chance of being robbed while camping/house boating. The same goes for the bigger cities like Salmon Arm.
