Take the Squilax-Anglemont Road turnoff as you head up Highway 1 toward Sorrento to Tsútswecw Provincial Park (formerly Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park). The park is home to the Adams River Sockeye Salmon Run, one of the largest in North America. In October, you can view the returning salmon (millions during dominant years). The park is also home to a 26 km (16 mi) trail system that is ideal for hiking or mountain biking in the summer.
Anchoring the Shuswap is approximately 600 km (373 mi) of flawless shoreline around Shuswap Lake. Consisting of four arms, the lake looks like the letter “H” and provides pristine waterways for outdoor recreation. Houseboating is a quintessential Shuswap experience, allowing unparalleled freedom on the warm lake.
Head northeast on Highway 1 toward Sorrento before curving around the lake down into Salmon Arm (home to the Roots & Blues Festival). Take a scenic sunset walk along the Salmon Arm Wharf, the longest inland wooden curved wharf in Canada, for unrivaled views of the bird sanctuary and ecological reserve. If you have time, stroll through Herald Provincial Park for an enchanting forest experience.
Continue east on Highway 1 to head north toward Sicamous. The town is known as the Houseboat Capital of Canada and a popular summer vacation destination. The ample beachfront offers opportunity to relax in the sun or to cool off in the lake. Hikers and mountain bikers will find many trails to explore in the Monashee Mountains.
