Destination

Sicamous is the Houseboat Capital of Canada and a place where you can snowmobile, golf and houseboat all in the same weekend in May!

Sicamous offers superb snowmobiling in the winter.  Our groomed trails on the four local mountains feature sledding for everyone, from the novice to the extreme rider. The deep powder snow extends the sledding season well into the spring.

In the spring, summer and fall, enjoy the relaxation of boating and fishing in our warm, pristine lakes and take in the many amenities offered at Finlayson Park and the Beach Park.  For those who want to play, we can offer you every imaginable water toy.  Hike our many walking and hiking trails, leading to waterfalls cascading over large boulders and experience the sounds of nature while strolling through our forests.

Amenities:

  • Visit the Beach Park - children's playground, swimming, sunbathing, beach volleyball and water splash park ... and don't forget the spectacular July 1st Fireworks Display!

  • Two small quiet beaches are located at the Two Mile Subdivision on Tecumseh and Cartier Roads.

  • Visit Finlayson Park - children's playground, skateboard park ... view the caboose, play a game of ball on one of the three top notch pitches or drop by the Museum for a step back in time!

  • Take a stroll through the peaceful nature park at the end of Silver Sands Road.

  • Hike up the trail off Sicamous landfill road or up Owlhead.

  • Take your dog to the Paws in Motion leash-free dog park for a run along the Eagle River or launch your canoe at this location into the Eagle River.

  • After a day on the lake, moor your boat at the Main Street Landing for a few hours of browsing in our local shops and enjoy a terrific meal or treat in a local restaurant or coffee house.  Or enjoy the view of the channel from the Main Street Landing and the beautifully landscaped waterfront.

  • Jump on your bicycle and tour around town on the expanded cycling/walking areas alongside many connector streets.

  • Complimentary washroom facilities are located throughout the municipality and free parking is available on municipal properties.

Something for everyone ... we invite visitors to be part of the Sicamous experience - by houseboating or sledding, golfing or hiking - or simply taking a boat tour of our beautiful Shuswap and Mara Lakes.  There is something for everyone.  Sicamous awaits!
