Premier Listings for Shuswap

The beautiful Shuswap is situated in south-central British Columbia, northeast of Vancouver. The Shuswap Lake system offers more than 1,000 kilometres of shoreline to explore, amidst spectacular scenery and a pristine environment. The Shuswap offers a four-season playground that boasts the largest houseboat fleet in Canada, and one of the largest in the world, offering a fabulous way to vacation with family and friends, lazily drifting along the lake gazing at blue skies and gorgeous mountains. The mountains surrounding the shuswap provide trails for snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing in the winter, and hiking and mountain biking in the sun-drenched summers.

The beautiful Shuswap Lake takes its name from the Shuswap Indians, northernmost of the Great Salishan Family, and one of the largest tribes in the interior of British Columbia. Once numbering over 5,000, these people were fishermen and hunters, roaming in bands through the vast land of lakes and forests, reaching 240 kilometres to the west, east and north. Salmon Arm takes its name from the southwest arm of the Shuswap Lake, due to the large runs of salmon that used to run up the creeks that empty into the lake.

Location: The Shuswap is located in south-central British Columbia, midway between Vancouver and Calgary, Alberta. The Trans Canada Highway 1 and Highway 97 provide easy access from all directions.
