From vast terrain, to sunshine, to activities for everyone—there are plenty of reasons why Sun Peaks should be included in your summer travel plans.
Acres of Uncrowded TRAILS to Explore
From blossom-dotted hiking trails to a sprawling network of both downhill and cross country bike trails, Sun Peaks’ mountains offer the perfect escape from the crowds in the summer. With biking trails on 3 mountains and 16 designated hiking trails, you can explore stunning mountain vistas. Plus, with a variety of activities throughout the valley, including an 18-hole golf course, you’ll have no trouble finding ways to fill your time.
Sunshine & Wildflowers Galore
Sun Peaks receives over 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, so you’ll be able to soak it all up while you’re enjoying all of those outdoor activities. Wildflowers dot the alpine all summer long, but typically explode in late July and early August, making for a stunning kaleidoscope of colour. This is one sight not to miss!
A Full Array of Summer Activities
Sun Peaks has a number of activities on offer in the summer months, so there is something for everyone. Visitors can explore the mountains, valley, or nearby lakes. Hiking, mountain biking, golfing, canoe and kayaking and stand up paddleboarding are all easily accessible.
The Perfect Road Trip Destination
Summer is for road tripping, and you’re going to want to add Sun Peaks to your driving list. Being just over a four-hour drive from Vancouver makes us the closest resort in the interior of British Columbia from the Lower Mainland; and if you’re coming from the south you’ll first pass through the unique semi-arid city of Kamloops, only 45 minutes away. As you drive into Sun Peaks, three mountains will surround you—making for the perfect beginning to your stay!
Wander through the European-style pedestrian village filled with restaurants, cafés, shops, and more. Enjoy free entertainment including mini-golf, outdoor games, magicians, Sun Peaks Market Days, and more.
