Our Story

Quench your thirst for the great outdoors as you explore our mountains and valley, carved by the Similkameen River. Follow Highway 97 through the Similkameen where you’ll find friendly, eclectic small towns, sizeable ranches and farms, orchards, vineyards and wineries. Choose from an assortment of adventures from mild and wild.

The Similkameen is where you’ll find the Fruit Stand Capital, the Organic Farming Capital of Canada and an award winning wine region. Heritage sites and museums proudly showcase the pioneers who settled here and the First Nation people who have called this place home for thousands of years.

Mother Nature did some of her best work here. Mountains with jagged peaks, rocky outcrops, rolling hills, alpine meadows, crystal clear lakes, and the Similkameen River invite you to connect with our ancient landscape. Hike, bike, camp, swim, fish, canoe, kayak or float your days away. Wildlife abounds with Bighorn Sheep, mountain goats, bear, elk, deer, moose, eagles, hawks and countless other species. In the winter, enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing as well as snowshoeing and snowmobiling. This is where you unplug, unwind and reconnect with who you are. This is the Similkameen.
