It’s true. There is a place where you can walk through seven distinct ecosystems and along hundreds of sanctioned, isolated trails.
It’s called the South Thompson Shuswap and it needs to be your next hiking trip. The trails of Shuswap, Sun Peaks and Kamloops in Western Canada have it all. Lush, mossy, pristine forests with rushing waterfalls? Check. Soaring mountain ridges lined with alpine flowers? Check. Barren, rocky desert? Check. Breezy, summery grasslands? Check. We could go all day, but it would be better to just show you.
If you have to see it to believe it, just have a look at these spectacular 20 Instagram photos from the South Thompson Shuswap taken by residents and visitors.
Want to visit in the fall or winter? Of course, hiking is a year round experience in the South Thompson Shuswap.
