Things to Do

Surrounded by so many diverse landscapes, Hope is an outdoor adventurer's paradise.
Meander through the farmlands of the Fraser Valley, drive up the desert-like Fraser Canyon with its historic sites (part of the Ranchlands & Rivers Circle Route), or explore the lush, rain forested parks.
Activities include fishing, geocaching, mountain biking, swimming in alpine lakes, whitewater rafting, skiing – even flightseeing, as well as festivals that celebrate Hope's rich heritage and Aboriginal art galleries such as Ruby Creek and Muskwa Gallery.
The mountains and rivers characterize Hope's diverse hiking experience. There are easy trails that meander past the town's iconic chainsaw carvings and beside Hope's excellent riverside golf course, special walks for Rambo fans (this is where First Blood was filmed), as well as strenuous climbs to mountain tops.
