Set amidst towering sun-drenched hoodoos, sagebrush and pine covered hillsides and at the intersecting points of the North and South Thompson Rivers, you will find Kamloops – Canada’s Tournament Capital. The vibrant city is alive with locally produced creative artisans, wineries, craft breweries and cideries, welcoming entrepreneurs and boutique owners, community festivals, sporting events and more! Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the manicured walking paths throughout the city, to the countless kilometers of scenic hiking and biking trails that surround the area.
Kamloops is home to championship golf courses, endless opportunities to get out on the water (hundreds of lakes just outside the city limits), tennis and pickleball courts, and to Thompson Rivers University – featuring an indoor track, pool and exercise facilities. Convenient RV locations are also located within the area should you wish to bring yours.
