Ashcroft (population: 1,664) rests along the banks of the Thompson River, deep in the heart of British Columbia's desert country.
The town is set amid a spectacular recreational environment where hiking, golfing, and fishing thrive. The area's provincial parks are marked by semi-arid grasslands and rolling hills that form the Highland Valley Plateau.
Ashcroft is an unpretentious town committed to its history, creative community, and relationship with the land. The Ashcroft Stampede is the community's biggest event celebration (held in summer). The Ashcroft historical walking tour of buildings dating back to the late 1800s provides a year-round opportunity to experience the town's rich heritage.
