Welcome to the Similkameen Valley

British Columbia, Canada

Rugged. Rustic. Real.

Spring in the Similkameen Valley is a little different this year as we continue to monitor and respond to the travel advisories during the global pandemic. While only essential travel is recommended at this time, we encourage safe travel at all times.

Melting snow at higher elevations give way to increased river flows and trails are revealed for long-awaited hiking and biking throughout the valley, check out China Ridge Trails near Princeton.

While many events are on pause, we to celebrate Spring with the blossoms, new borns at the farms, wineries re-opening and farms full of abundant organic offerings, golf is back and a drive through the Similkameen is always relaxing.

Keremeos and Cawston boast Fruit Stand Capital of Canada and Organic Farm Capital of Canada. Cathedral Lakes and Manning Park offers lots of variety of outdoor adventure.

Dream of summer with fishing, camping, RVing, floating the river and wine and cider tasting!

How about the anticipation of fresh water trout, cooked over an open campfire, and placed hot and steamy on your plate. So good you can almost taste it!

Camping & RVing

For some, counting the stars in the night sky is more important than thread count. Camping and RVing are one of the best ways to experience our area.
