SUN PEAKS HIKING TRAILS

During alpine blossom season from mid July to mid August, you’ll see the beauty of the alpine in full bloom…you really do have to experience this to believe it! Sun Peaks also offers guided alpine hiking tours, “Experience the very best our alpine playground has to offer, from panoramic views and vivid wildflowers, to artifacts of days past and the rich history behind them!”
There is also Embleton Mountain Trail near Heffley Lake, as well as our very own waterfall hike, a short 20 minute hike to a marvelous waterfall…nature’s air conditioning on a hot summer day!
Hitch N Rail Resort on beautiful Heffley Lake offers boat rentals of all kinds. Kayaks, canoes, row boats, pedal boats, 12 foot aluminum boats with 6 hp motors, SUP’s, and there’s even a restaurant where home cooking is the word of the day!

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the fastest growing water sport in the world! SUP is easy to learn and is a non-intimidating activity that appeals to all ages and physical abilities. On beautiful Heffley Lake, you too can learn to ‘walk on water’!
THE GOLF COURSE AT SUN PEAKS
Sun Peaks Resort offers a one-of-a-kind BC golf vacation opportunity with the greens located at 1,200 metres above sea level, making the Golf Course at Sun Peaks Resort British Columbia’s highest elevation course.
Surrounded by natural foliage and panoramic mountain views, the challenging 18-hole par 72 Graham Cooke is centered along the valley floor amongst the three surrounding mountains; Tod, Sundance, and Morrisey. Bonuses of the higher elevation is that your ball flies longer, plus, the higher mountain air provides for cooler summer days; Sun Peaks is often 10 degrees cooler than Kamloops!
Alpine Explorers offers an exciting tour experience for all levels of confidence and ability. While you are travelling through the wonderful alpine scenery on your off-road Segway, your guide will offer many opportunities to stop, take photographs, and enjoy the views and wildlife from all angles and elevations. Tours are available from 1 to 3-1/2 hours…how much do you love to Segway??
Mountain biking has deep roots at Sun Peaks. Our trails are nothing short of legendary and our DH race history continues to evolve, speaking volumes about the caliber of riding. Our park offers exciting options for riders of all ages, ability levels, and terrain preferences, not to mention a full spectrum of camps, clinics, and guided tours to help you make the most of your time on the mountain!
VOYAGEUR CANOE TOURS
Join the North West Voyageur Company for a trip into Canada’s storied past by paddling an authentic voyageur canoe around McGillivray Lake at Sun Peaks. Our local lakes are home to resident osprey, bald eagles, loons, beaver, and thousands of trout. The lakes are also home to moose, bear, and even cougars, all of which are frequently spotted. Through this completely non-strenuous trip, guests will receive great insight into how this nation was discovered, explored, and eventually established.
MOUNTAIN CROSS CARTS
A definite must-do activity when visiting Sun Peaks-and maybe the most exciting and exhilarating way to descend a mountain! Sun Peaks Resort is home to North America’s first (and only) Mountain Cross Cart course. Although this may loosely resemble favorite childhood go-carts, the mountain environment and tight corners add an exciting twist, and the 52 metre vertical descent make this adventure a little more daring that the days of yore!
Just a 20 minute hike from our suite is the beautiful Whitecroft Waterfall. A beauty to behold any time of year, this hike is suitable for even young children (that’s my granddaughter and I in the picture). So refreshing on a hot summer day…mother nature’s air conditioning!
I’ve done a lot of hiking in this beautiful province and seen many spectacular views that only two feet and a heartbeat can take you to. Helmcken Falls however, is a short walk off of the road and one of the most breathtaking sights I have ever seen at 463 ft (141 m) high and 75 ft (23 m) wide!! It’s only a 2 hour drive from our suite, in Wells Gray Provincial Park, and well worth the excursion. You’ll never forget it…I promise!
Another of the locals favorites, Powder Hounds (I love that name) offers up some of the best Schnitzel anywhere!! Their doors have been open since 1998 so they’ve gotta be doing something right!
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
These are a few of my favorite things…
Yummy!! I took a survey and that’s the common consensus of the locals, Voyageur Bistro overwhelmingly won as the favorite local dining spot! As it’s name suggests this restaurant is Canadiana all the way…Bison and Bannock for brunch anyone?
Bottoms Bar & Grill
Welcome to the local’s living room!! Exquisite pub food, warm atmosphere, and exceptionally awesome staff make this an unforgettable experience whether here for lunch, dinner, or a night on the town…go where the locals go.
