Kamloops lives up to its motto of “lifestyle above all else”. Ideally located in the heart of British Columbia’s sunny interior, the city is a four-season adventure playground. The North and South Thompson rivers meet in Kamloops, which is easily accessed by road, air and railways. A bustling cosmopolitan centre that values their local culture, Kamloops has excellent schools and leads the region in healthcare.
Fun and family-friendly attractions are plentiful, complimenting the cultural events that happen year-round in this mild climate. The city is full of parks in and around the core, and outdoor recreational opportunities are vast and varied.
Residents are surrounded by wide-open grasslands, thick pine forests and stunning sandstone canyons. Lush river valleys can be seen near snow-capped mountains, and sweeping vistas are common for Kamloops properties. Hot, dry summers with abundant sunshine are long here and allow plenty of time to enjoy the area outdoors. Mild winters are also packed with activity; Kamloops is the ‘Tournament Capital of Canada’ and hosts more than 100 tournaments each year. Residents and visitors can explore the local culinary, sports, entertainment and arts scenes, including 29 locally-sourced outdoor murals weaving through downtown.
As there are more than 100 lakes within just an hour’s drive of the city proper, Kamloops is a freshwater fisherman’s paradise and has some of the best fishing in North America. To increase the recreational allure, Kamloops is home to the highest number of golf courses per capita in Canada, and golfing is enjoyed across three seasons. An arid climate and extensive trail network mean hiking and mountain biking can be enjoyed year-round. In the winter months, snowshoe, cross-country ski, skate, or visit nearby world-class resort Sun Peaks for downhill skiing.
