Outdoor activities and family fun in Kamloops

A trip to the Sun Peaks Ski Area is always a hit with the whole family.  There are three mountains that all come together to finish off in the village.  In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are top of everyone’s list and visitors are often surprised by the lack of queues due to this well-managed ski area.  The views are just as superb as the skiing experience itself and, if you book your Kamloops accommodation within close proximity of the slopes, you can really make the most of that fluffy white powder every day.

The McArthur Island Park is another great place to take the family for a fun day outdoors.  This athletic complex was designed with precision and great foresight.  In the park you will find a scenic river trail, soccer fields, baseball fields, a curling rink, hockey rinks and a skate park.  There are even restaurants where you can grab a bite or something to drink too.

The Kamloops Wildlife Park is all about making a difference.  While the animals are on display and visitors are able to view them, the park also acts as a sanctuary and rehabilitation centre for injured animals.  There are plenty of different species to see here which makes it perfect for the whole family.

If the weather isn’t what you hoped for, you can take everyone to The Fun Factor Family Fun Centre for Pirates Mini Golf, Laser Tag and plenty of other fun games.  There are also bowling facilities in the city which is perfect for getting everyone involved in the same activity together.

Other great things to do in Kamloops

Kamloops, like any other top class town or city, has its fair share of shopping complexes.  Visit the Aberdeen Mall and Sahali Mall if you are interested in doing some shopping while on holiday.  Even if you don’t purchase much (or anything at all), a trip to one of the local malls is both fun and fascinating. 

In terms of evening entertainment, you have plenty to choose from in Kamloops.  With so many options, you most likely won’t spend much time in your hotel room apart from sleeping and freshening up.  The Sagebrush Theatre and several restaurants, bars and pubs make it possible for you to plan something different for each evening.

There are also a number of tour companies in the area that will take you around the area on horseback or off road vehicle, depending on your preference.

Don’t forget to check out the local wineries and spas in Kamloops as well.  There’s nothing better than enjoying a soothing massage after a day of hiking.
