Shuswap Lake is a beautiful place to visit with your friends and family. There is more to do that only rent a house boat. You can visit national parks, you can rent a boat, jet ski, kayak or a paddle board. You can go and enjoy farmer markets, eat in beautiful restaurants, visit great wineries... just so much to do...... More

At this time of year the water was low exposing lots of rock and many beaches along the shore. In the background the peaks of the mountains were... More

The Shuswap is a massive lake and the best way to see it is to do it by houseboat. This past summer we chose a boat from Waterways houseboat rentals and set off to explore the great lake for 4 days. This was quite frankly one of the best summer vacations I can remember, right back to when I was... More

Went out on a family trip, early fall for 4 days, We had the Genesis 75, houseboat was fantastic, tons of room. The crew at waterway were great and funny, very helpful. It was super easy with our baby at the time being 4 months old, we could just cruise around and feed him anytime we had to. Beautiful scenery.... More

The Shuswap Lake is such a unique and magical place. The scenery and recreational opportunities are second to none. Great summertime adventures await! Awesome mountainbiking, hiking, camping, swimming wakeboarding in the houseboat capital of Canada.

This is a water lovers paradise set in the heart of mountains towering above you. If you love house-boating this is a destination you can not miss! There are five arms of the lake for you to travel, and it is easy to get away from the tourist feeling of many of the lakes in the interior of BC. Swimming,... More

Spent a lovely 5 hours with this wine tour. Very friendly and know the area very well. It was like being in another country as i have never been in this part of BC before.A must see is Larch mills winery. The owner was very good to show us the whole process of the winery. Great time sipping various wines.
