Things to Do

Lumby's unique setting in the transition zone between the semi-arid Okanagan Valley and the interior rainforest of the Monashee Mountains makes it a hub of activity for outdoor enthusiasts.
Explore the terrain on myriad hiking trails, fish in the waterways and camp in provincial parks. Serious adrenaline seekers paraglide over the valleys while more subtle adventurers seek out artists and art galleries.
Dry grassland and ponderosa pine dotted hillsides rise to the west, dense cedar and hemlock forest blanket the mountains to the east and the region is laced with creeks, rivers and lakes.
Lumby lays claim to being the "Hiking Capital of Canada." Trek more than 100 trails within easy reach of the village, exploring an array of ecosystems, spotting a wide variety of wildlife, discovering four area waterfalls and taking in a wealth of diverse vistas from mountain lookouts.
