The north and south Thompson rivers meet in Kamloops, where a desert-like interior boasts wide-open grasslands, sagebrush, ponderosa pine forests, sandstone canyons, and chiseled hoodoos.

With abundant sunshine, the second-largest city in BC’s Interior has 100+ lakes within easy reach, ideal for fishing and paddling. Mountain biking and golfing are also popular, and in winter, you can snowshoe, cross-country ski, as well as downhill ski and snowboard at Sun Peaks Resort and Harper Mountain.
