The Shuswap is a region of friendly communities with lots of culture, linked by an amazing lake and surrounded by beautiful forested mountains. Friendly folks welcome visitors to studios, galleries, lively museums, free concerts and internationally renowned musical events. Meet a winemaker and sip a local vintage, meet a farmer and tuck into apple pie or chat it up with shopkeepers in surprising little boutiques.

The Shuswap Lake system encompasses over 1,000km (620mi) of shoreline. The region hosts the largest houseboat fleet in Canada and the famous Adams River salmon run. In addition to the lakes, rivers, and beaches, the terrain consists of flat inland valleys, rolling hills and forests set against the backdrop of the Monashee Mountains.

For more information, be sure to check out the Shuswap website and our Route 97 roadtrips (1, 2) that run through the area.
