Summer at St. Ives
Summer in the Shuswap means getting out on the water! With St. Ives' proximity to the 'Narrows' where the four arms of Shuswap Lake converge, it's a great starting place to explore the miles of shoreline the lake is known for. Whether you head north to the quaint village of Seymour Arm, north-east up the remote Anstey Arm, south to the headwaters of the Thompson River, or South-east to Sicamous and Salmon Arm, you will never run out of beautiful scenery or things to explore. 2 to 3 hour lake tours available on site.
We have a private dock for loading and unloading your boat, seven buoys out front for overnight moorage and a large boat trailer parking area to store your trailer for the week. There are also several boat and jet ski rental businesses nearby if you don't bring one along including a rental fishing boat on site
Kayaking/Pedal boating/Paddle boards:
Here at St. Ives, we have four kayaks, two paddle boards and four pedal boats for our guests to use at no charge. Take a morning cruise down the lake and take in the natural beauty that surrounds the North Shuswap.
Although the peak fishing is primarily in the spring and the fall, trout can be caught at any time of the year, from a boat, pedal boat, kayak, or even right off of our dock! We have a small supply of fishing rods and tackle available to purchase to get you going as well as a rental boat on site.
Celista Winery, Canada's northern most winery is just minutes down the road and offer our guests private or group winery tours. There are also many other wineries in the area for those who enjoy BC's world-class wines!
The North Shuswap offers a good selection of designated hiking trail including Albas Falls the Adam's River Trails. For those more adventurous, there is access up to the alpine where the vistas are breathtaking.
