Welcome to the Similkameen ValleyBritish Columbia, Canada
Rugged. Rustic. Real.

Rugged. Rustic. Real.

Nothing quite sizzles like the Similkameen Valley in summer, perfect for fishing, floating, kayaking or canoeing the Similkameen River. Discover Similkameen by the glass touring wineries or at the annual events like the Similkameen BBQ King competition. Find a new appreciation for old-fashioned music at the Princeton Traditional Music Festival, or take in one of the summer's concerts at the Grist Mill and Gardens. Run the Fat Dog 120 or the Ultraman Canada endurance race and discover the exhilaration of pushing beyond your limits. The Similkameen comes alive in summer, with wandering wildlife and avid explorers, hiking and cycling mountain and valley trails. The fruit stands and farmers markets between Keremeos and Cawston are bursting with fresh-picked produce, straight from our fields. Explore the link between British Columbia's First Nations and our prospecting past at heritage sites and museums in Keremeos, Hedley and Princeton. Sweet summer fruits are at their peak - get your just-picked baskets at our fruit stands and markets before they're all done.
