Shuswap Lake



Located 295 mi/475 km northeast of Vancouver, Shuswap, British Columbia, is yet another lake recreation area, but it offers something a little different: paddle-wheeler tours and rental houseboats that can be maneuvered through 600 mi/1,000 km of waterways. Swimming, kayaking, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and other watersports are also available.

The Adams River is known for the major sockeye-salmon runs that occur there every four years in late summer and fall: The brilliant red fish are so plentiful then, they look like a crimson wave moving upstream. Some folks even go snorkeling with the salmon.
