Travel Spotlight

Little Fort

The small community of Little Fort is situated on the North Thompson River which offers excellent fly-fishing. Outdoor adventurers who like a little exhilaration can take a whitewater rafting trip on the Clearwater River and for a more gentle ride, using North Thompson River Provincial Park as your base, you can take a gentle paddle downstream. There are also various horseback trails in the area and in the winter great skiing on Clearwater Ski Hill.

A Step Back in Time

The North Thompson River was once the busy highway of the First Nations people and, later, the fur traders, gold prospectors, ranchers, and settlers. The stunning scenery and surroundings beckon travellers to explore the area using a range of transportation, from horseback riding and helicopters, to ATVs, snowmobiles and whitewater rafting.

The Gateway to the North Thompson Valley was originally the gathering site for the Shuswap people, and their history is honoured in the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park.
