Tucked between two rivers, Kamloops lives for the outdoors. Warmer weather shines on vast grasslands, sandstone canyons, pine forests and spectacular golf courses waiting for you lakeside. Come first snowfall, set out to ski resorts for downhill fun and uphill views. After days of ice fishing or mountain biking, settle back into Kamloops for urban adventures around foodie spots, art galleries and museums.

FUN FACT

“HANDS UP!” yells the robber before claiming his plunder, or so you’ve heard in stories. The expression was supposedly coined by bandit Bill Miner (aka The Grey Fox), the man who committed Canada’s first train robbery near Kamloops. The Kamloops Heritage Railway stages re-enactments of the famous crime and there’s a mural depicting it outside Cactus Jack’s nightclub.
