Summer Activities...

  Summer activities are plentiful.  Hey, you're on Shuswap Lake - one of the nicest lakes in British Columbia!  So get out on the water and enjoy some water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, or just take a spin around the lake and enjoy the views.  Or if you prefer, grab a spot on one of the plentiful sandy beaches for some swimming, playing in the sand, or just catching some rays. 

  There's plenty of room in the North Shuswap for scenic biking or hitting the trails for some nature hikes.  And for an energetic exploration of the natural beauty of the hundreds of kilometers of undeveloped Shuswap Lake shoreline, a canoe or kayak trip is sure to please.

    For those with something else in mind, here are a few of suggestions to round out your vacation plans:

  Shuswap Lake contains 19 species of fish, with lake trout, rainbow trout and kokanee being some of the prize catches from the lake.  Kamloops trout, a unique strain of trout native to the central and south-central Interior regions of the province, guarantee a thrilling performance for anyone skilled enough to hook one.  These wild rainbow trout are the prize catch in the Niskonlith Provincial Park and Silver Beach Provincial Park in Seymour Arm at the north-east end of Shuswap Lake.  And in Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, angling for rainbow trout, dolly varden and whitefish is popular, with the canyon and river mouth being amongst the most productive sites.  Close by, White Lake is rated as one of the top ten rainbow trout fishing lakes in North America, and is popular for ice fishing in the winter months.

  If golf is your thing, then the Shuswap has the course for your swing!  Within a one-hour radius of Magna Bay Vacations are numerous golf courses ranging from the fun, 9-hole family courses to the pro-designed and challenging world-renowned courses.  What finer way can you spend exercising while enjoying the fine weather?

World Famous Adams River
Salmon Run

  The largest sockeye salmon run on the continent is located 20 minutes down the road on the Adams River which connects the Adams and Shuswap Lakes in the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.  Every four years (October in 2010, 2014, 2018...) the run is larger than average.  The park offers excellent trails and viewing locations as well as informative interpretation sites.  The year 2016 marks the 20th celebration on the banks of the Adams.  If you have never experienced this natural wonder, make it a plan for this year.
