Salmon Arm is the perfect family getaway for people from the Lower Mainland, Kelowna, Kamloops and Calgary. Salmon Arm is looked at as the perfect stopping point for so many people making the Vancouver-Calgary drive but it’s usually just that, a stop over. They don’t know what they’re missing when they get up and leave the next morning!
Salmon Arm offers one of BC’s largest lakes at just over 300 square kilometers, most of it surrounded by untouched crown land riddled with trails and secluded camping spots. In the summer it is Canada’s mecca for houseboating, water sports, hiking and cross country biking. The winter brings just as much fun with 3 of BC’s top resorts (Sun Peaks, Siverstar, Revelstoke) within 1 hour of Salmon Arm. It also offers a premier cross country ski area and several lakes to skate and snow-kite on.
