British Columbia, Canada, is known globally for its amazing landscapes, endless coasts, and precious wildlife. Just four hours inland, glampers can find a special, almost untouched region near the sparsely populated town of Walhachin, where visitors come to get away from it all and experience nature at its very best. The surrounding region boasts lakes, rivers, forests, and mountain peaks that allow for endless opportunities for outdoor adventures.
The property itself lies on the Thompson River and is just minutes west of Kamloops Lakes, so its a great location for water sports enthusiasts. The river bank is great for sunbathing, wading, swimming, fishing, and having a picnic, while more adventurous glampers can kayak, canoe, or even go rafting. The larger Kamloops Lake is great for more extensive fishing and boating.
The terrain immediately accessible from the property is hilly and rocky, with scattered forests, so it is terrific for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Bird watchers, photographers, and wildlife enthusiasts will never have a boring moment while roaming the areas around the river.
For those who are interested in visiting during the winter months, the surrounding ski resorts open their doors to downhill skiing and snowboarding, so glampers who love the snow will get a taste of a true British Columbia winter.
