Kamloops Holidays

Reference WW37895

When you visit Kamloops on your Canadian adventure holiday you'll find a town located in the south-central interior of Canada’s westernmost province of British Columbia. Located on the banks of the Thompson River, it was originally settled by the Cree first nation in the early fifteenth century, though it was later settled by Europeans and established as a fur-trading post in the early 1800s. It is rich with culture, and home to many galleries and artisans. Kamloops has its own symphony orchestra as well as being well known for its public art, which includes several murals and native pole carvings. It is a hub of rail transport as well as having a small regional airport, and is located on the Trans-Canada highway system. A relatively small city at less than two hundred thousand in population, Kamloops is a destination for all seasons.

With its relatively mild winters, there is always plenty to do on the mountain, and during the summer, outdoor activities abound. Wildlife viewing, brewery and winery tours, museums, railway history, farmers markets and water sports on the lake are all very popular, and there are plenty of unique attractions that are guaranteed to be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Peel back the layers and you will find much ado in Kamloops that lies just below the surface.
