Kamloops is located at the crossroads of the Coquihalla Highway, Yellowhead Highway, and Trans-Canada Highway. The Kamloops Airport is a 15-minute drive from downtown, the cultural hub of the city. It’s easy to get here.
They're home to the Kamloopa Powwow, International Buskers Festival, Sport Chek Kamloops Marathon, Brewloops Beer Festival, and more.
Their backyard is a mix of rolling grasslands, sandstone slot canyons, hoodoos, and a whole lot of sagebrush. It’s weird, awesome and a unique climate for the award-winning wineries in the Thompson Valley.
They're fans of the work-life balance and their extensive trail networks keep them exploring year-round. Locals take advantage of Kamloops’ desert climate by fishing from shore, mountain biking through Pineview Valley, and hiking from early spring to late fall in Lac Du Bois Provincial Park. Kamloops has mild winters that get families adventuring on skis, snowshoes, ice skates, and snowmobiles.
