Icon-PopularAreas-SimilkameenValley

An agricultural valley with an ethos of organic farming, the Similkameen Valley in British Columbia’s arid southern interior is filled with orchards, ranches, and wineries.

Keremeos, known as the “Fruit Stand Capital of Canada,” is a must for fresh produce, especially luscious summer peaches and corn. Relaxed and unpretentious, it’s a great place to picnic, camp, float down the river, and cycle through the sagebrush. Manning Park is the area’s classic old-school resort for Nordic and winter downhill skiing and hiking, camping, and swimming in summer.

Similkameen Valley

Highway 3 winds through the Similkameen Valley, a scenic journey that runs across the southern edge of the province. It’s a relaxed and rewarding route between Vancouver and the Okanagan Valley, or a worthwhile destination on its own.
