Things to Do

As the entry point into Wells Gray Provincial Park, Clearwater is a hub of outdoor adventure.
Fish well-stocked lakes near town, hike to vast fields of alpine flowers, golf at one of three 9-hole courses, whitewater raft on churning rivers, relax at a guest ranch, or enjoy food with a view at a lakeside restaurant. When a chill is in the air, hit the downhill-ski slopes or groomed cross-country ski trails.
Located 126km/78mi north of Kamloops, and about half way between Jasper, Alberta and Vancouver on the Yellowhead Highway (Highway 5), Clearwater is the largest community in the North Thompson Valley. Rich in culture and history, the town features historical and heritage sites, festivals celebrating nature, and events reflective of First Nations traditions. In and around this vibrant community an accessible and enriching way of life awaits exploration.
