Recreation & Events

Sicamous is a way of life.

Where the energy of nature sparks the energy of the people. No matter where you sit on the energy dial. Where bird watching recharges some, wakeboarding refuels others. All ultimately are inspired, rejuvenated and enthused. Because it Sicamous we believe in a life lived with spark.
