Whether it's Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall, Sicamous has lots to keep one entertained. Our slogan for many years has been: "Sicamous - where you can bike,hike, sled and go boating all in the same day!"
We are truly blessed with one of the largest lakes in BC, and what makes it so spectular is that it completely natural! The lake boost great fishing from Salmon, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Dolly Vardens and Kokanee.
Sicamous is known as the" Houseboat Capital of Canada" as we are home to almost 200 houseboats. You can also enjoy sea doo's, patio boats on the Shuswap or Mara Lake. For those looking for a quieter trip on the water try our Eagle River it's great for canoeing or kayak, or a lazy float on a tube.
Our falls are the are breath-taking, the colors of Autumn are not to be missed. While in the area, on large spawning years the Chinook and Sockeye Salmon can be seen just east of our Community, or travel the hour and a half to the famous Rockrick Haig Brown park to see the main spawning grounds.
If winter is your time of year then come and try out one of our 4 award winning sledding hills. From family riding to the most extreme riding Sicamous has it all.
Sicamous is a great location for those wanting that great golf trip.
