Sicamous, set along Shuswap and Mara lakes | Shuswap Tourism


Shuswap Lake is the attraction of this south-central British Columbia area of rugged mountains, forest-lined valleys, grasslands, and lakes.

The Shuswap is a popular place for families and a favourite house-boating and water recreation destination. Salmon Arm is the urban centre on the lakeshore with a long curved wooden wharf, sandy beaches, and the well-loved Roots and Blues music festival.


This area is home to 1,000 km (600 mi) of shoreline, with fishing, hiking, biking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and a growing number of wineries.
