Has the chance to spend 4 days in the Shuswap Lake area while visiting at a family cottage in Enderby. Was a gorgeous part of Canada. Would love to go back.

Hundreds of kilometres of shore, all kind of acitivities and a beatiful drive for a large part of actually the several lakes. Nice variation from the mountains of Banff and Jasper.

I miss living close to this beautiful spot. I like strolling the park and warf or just people watching. It is so peaceful that you can forget your right down town. Well worth visiting.
