The locals call it endless summer – and you do not want to miss out on sneaking away to Kamloops this autumn. Kamloops has a great place to visit in the fall. The colours are beautiful, the summer crowds have all gone home, and the weather is still incredible!
So, what type of weekend will you plan?
The Salmon Run Weekend Getaway:
This is the perfect time of year to view the Salmon Run at Adams River located approximately 40 minutes east of the city in Tsútswecw Provincial Park. Even in non-dominant years, hundreds of Salmons can still be seen. With beautiful fall foliage, the drive along the Thompson River and Shuswap is stunning.
The Wine Tour Weekend Getaway:
At a latitude of 50.6 degrees north and nestled deep in the valley on the banks of the North and South Thompson Rivers, you’ll find one of BC’s newest and northernmost wine destinations. A premium BC wine designation, the Thompson Valley is home to four wineries that will delight every palate. Discover a bevy of premium, bright, award-winning wines as you explore the Thompson Valley wine region on your own or with a guided tour. Visit a tasting room to find your new favourite. With four wineries to experience, it’s the perfect excuse to take that weekend getaway.
