Where Rivers Meet

Known as the "meeting place" of the North and South Thompson rivers, Kamloops basks in over 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, making it a prime location for hiking, mountain biking, strolling, or slathering on sunscreen and soaking up some rays. It also makes for good grape-growing; Kamloops' budding wine industry promises plenty of Pinot Gris to cool yourself down with.

Things to do:

Red Bridge

Stroll the old wooden Red Bridge and look towards Riverside Park for spectacular views of the area. 

Rivers Trail

Take an evening stroll along the Rivers Trail as it winds its way along the shore of the Thompson River. Need a break? Rest on one of the many benches and enjoy the view.
