Kamloops Area

Abundant Stillwaters by the Thompson River

Kamloops is tucked into the western slope of the Rocky Mountains on the mighty Thompson River. “The Loops” boasts a population of around 80,000 people. Small enough to feel at home, and big enough to ensure there are enough pubs to wet your whistle.

Its location on the Trans Canada highway about 3 hours north of Vancouver makes travel to Kamloops simple by car and there’s service by air and rail. The city has many hotels and B+B’s and we’d be happy to provide a recommendation for you. Kamloops is world renowned for its stillwater fisheries.
