The Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival is not to be missed.


If you crave outdoor adventure, try the epic 38-kilometre Larch Hills Traverse, any season of the year – hiking, biking, or skiing. The traverse is made up of seven distinct sections, connecting forestry roads and singletrack through a variety of ecosystems and terrain.  


Check out one of the three nearby alpine ski resorts or the Shuswap Trail Alliance for more outdoor recreation options.
