As you travel through the serene landscape and unparalleled beauty of interior BC, one thing becomes quite clear, below the surface of tranquility lies an area that is brimming with activity. From adrenaline-inducing outdoor sports to indoor shopping and spa indulgences, there’s something for everyone.
Entertainment and Culture
The Arts Council for South Shuswap has made it their mission to celebrate the culture and history of the region by permeating the area with an array of entertainment venues such as Small Hall Music Crawl, South Shuswap Children’s Theatre Troup, and Music in the Bay. And for those that want to channel their inner artist, lessons in art, dance, and music are just a registration click away.
Relaxing sounds of waves slowly lap against the beach where warm sand cradles your feet as you make your way to the water’s edge. A treatment that is highly sought after in Europe, Hydrotherapy is the practice of utilizing water as a means of relaxing and rejuvenating the body and mind. With refreshing lakes and rivers caressed by magnificent mountain scenery, the time-honored tradition of connecting with nature through water is an experience that the Shuswap region is ready to provide.
This is not your regular, brand name shopping. The Shuswap Artisan Market offers handmade art that has been lovingly crafted by local artists while the All Organic Farmers’ Market prides itself on strictly selling organic produce and other edibles.
Do you dream of lush green fairways, shiny nine irons, and commentators enthusiastically, yet quietly, delivering a play-by-play of a perfect hole-in-one? If so, then hop in your golf cart and head on over to Quaaout Lodge & Spa at Talking Rock Golf Course. The dichotomy of the pristine course surrounded by unbridled wilderness is something to be savoured.
