The lake is central to the Shuswap. It’s our water and our life. It sustains us, its our playground, it’s our solace, it’s our serenity and it’s our sanctuary. Not only that, but we get to share it with you! Lake culture is a key component of the spirit of the Shuswap. It’s the background to all of our stories... This is where families canoe together and watch the magical ‘walking on water’ dance of the Western Grebe. This is where a soul can experience a solitary sunset plunge in the centre of a lake from the deck of a houseboat, surrounded by nothing but scenery and silence.
