Sun Peaks Resort is a scenic 45-minute drive north from Kamloops via Highway 5 (the Yellowhead Hwy). This alpine village is nestled between three separate peaks and rests amid the Cariboo and Monashee Mountain ranges.
Hiking and Music
The once snow covered alpine slopes morph into endless hiking and mountain biking trails in the summer. The village square becomes centre stage for Sun Peaks’ legendary live music.

Alpine Blossoms Abound
