Sun Peaks makes a superb destination resort in the summer thanks to its dependably sunny weather and easy access to outdoor activities.
Hikers can amble along alpine trails, with guides are available for many of the routes. A recommended hike is Top of the World, which leads to the summit of Tod Mountain and spectacular views of the surrounding area.
The resort is also a superior mountain-biking site, thanks to 595m/1,954ft of hair-raising vertical and 39 trails suited to riders of different skill levels. Biking enthusiasts will find terrain that ranges from gentle, beginner slopes to stunts, bridges and wicked steeps.
In addition to hiking and riding, Sun Peaks offers golf on a challenging, 18-hole course; guided fly-fishing tours; canoeing and guided horseback riding.
