Salmon Arm Hotels

Hold your nerve - as you cling onto the rail while waterskiing - and you’ll enjoy views of green, fir tree-clustered banks, below snow powdered peaks, while skirting across Salmon Arm’s lake. Don’t worry if watersports aren’t your bag though – how about skiing, mountain biking, fishing or hiking? Salmon Arm can offer outdoor activities for every taste or, if you prefer, simply enjoy the downtown area, which hums to the sounds of friendly laughter and neighborly catch-ups.

Things to see

The glimmering Shuswap Lake is the heartbeat of this town, and its waters are perfect for any aqua-based activities you can imagine – from sailing to water zorbing. Chirping birds and silent eagles circle above the water around Salmon Arm Wharf - where little boats dock and amble away – and an ornate wooden jetty juts out from the shore. The lake kindly cooperates with photographers, reflecting the mountains and pretty sky in its perfectly still waters – divine around sunset. If the lake’s too sedate for you, travel out to Chase, where your feet will skim inches above a swirling, churning river, as you ride the Chase Canyon Treetop Flyers zip line. Feel the adrenaline rattling through your veins as you soar above raging waterfalls, and slice through thick forestry at high speeds. Take a little time to calm down before attempting to play a round at the beautiful Hyde Park Golf Course - you don’t want to be putting with shaking hands. This spectacular course is ideal for a morning round, and nothing beats the feeling you get as you strike the perfect drive through its open fairways, watching your ball soaring towards the sprawling Mara Lake in the distance.

Hotels in Salmon Arm

With so much outdoor action at your feet, splashing out on a luxury Salmon Arm hotel to return to is even more tempting. Defrost after snowmobiling - or cross country skiing - in a bubbling hot tub, before cuddling up in a soft gown by your own roaring log fire. If the weather’s warmer, spend the mornings sitting outside on your wooden balcony, taking in the tree-saturated view, or delving into a book as the sun warms your face. Choose from hotels with wide, open rooms – and luxury leather chairs and sofas included – or great value apartments, where rustling up food for the entire family is simple in fully-equipped kitchen areas. Most hotels provide TVs in their rooms, and give access to stable WiFi connections.

Where to stay

Salmon Arm is the perfect base for exploring this area of British Columbia. Whether you want to hit the golden beach at Sunnybrae, or climb the face of Mount Bastion, you’ll be well placed and easily able to return in time to taste fresh salmon, with creamy caramel infused sauce, at one of the town’s delicious restaurants. Enjoy a hoppy glass of Canoe Creek beer, brewed meters from your table, at the Barley Station. Another option is to stay in nearby Sicamous, which is very conveniently located for the tree-lined Mountain Hyde Golf Course.

How to get to Salmon Arm

Salmon Arm is neatly placed between Calgary and Vancouver, and you can drive along the Trans Canadian Highway to reach either in around 5 hours – the dramatic mountain scenery helps the journey to shoot by. If you literally want it to fly by, regional flights are available to Salmon Arm Airport, which is 10 minutes’ drive from downtown.
