Winter throws off it’s snowy coat to reveal a valley bursting in bloom. As the land awakens in spring, the melted snow reveals a myriad of mountain trails and community pathways. Orchards burst into bloom and farmers return to working the fields, preparing to fill markets and fruit stands in the coming seasons. Wineries release red wines from the cellar, ready to be sipped and savoured.
Rugged. Rustic. Real.
The Similkameen Valley is a land awaiting discovery, an under-discovered region made for adventurous explorers. Come explore the stunning scenery and experience the welcoming spirit of the local people.
The Similkameen River is the heart of the valley, guiding travellers along the Crowsnest Highway with its raw, natural beauty. From the Cascade Mountains the river flows past craggy mountains and rocky bluffs, giving life to small towns, ranchlands, orchards, and vineyards.
Hospitality is as warm as a Similkameen summer, with several accommodations to suit your needs, such as eclectic B&Bs, orchard and vineyard stays, camping, cabins and RV sites, family-friendly motels, inns and lodges, an all season resort, and more.
