The Gem of the Shuswap

In the heart of British Columbia’s famous Shuswap Lake recreation area is the town of Salmon Arm, the Northern Gateway to the Okanagan. Nestled on the south shores of Shuswap Lake, ideally situated mid way between Calgary and Vancouver, Salmon Arm is the largest town in the Shuswap area.

Salmon Arm is surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, clean waterways, provincial parks and an abundance of green space. All this lends itself to making tourism one of Salmon Arms’ fastest growing business sectors.

Salmon Arm has a mild, yet distinct four-season climate, and superior year-round recreational amenities. The area boasts abundant art and craft work of various cultures, including aboriginal selections.

Salmon Arm is located on the Trans-Canada Highway 1, at the southern tip of Shuswap Lake, 108 km east of Kamloops and 60 km north of Vernon.
