Kamloops has certainly earned its bragging rights. Firstly, the Tournament Capital of Canada gets over 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, the second-highest in the province. In the heart of the city, Kenna Cartwright Park claims the title of the largest municipal park in the province, with miles of trails for avid hikers and trail runners. Mountain bikers and golfers eager to dust off their clubs will also find plenty to keep themselves occupied amid the ample green areas and golf courses in and around town. Kamloops is also a geographic marvel: you’ll encounter rivers, desert, forests and grassland. Bonus: these outdoorsy gems are all within minutes of the best hotels in Kamloops, bookable with Culture Trip.
On the rare occasions when it rains in Kamloops, you’ll be glad about the 24-hour game room where you can challenge fellow guests to foosball, air hockey and billiards. Other perks at this well-appointed downtown hotel in Kamloops should please both two-wheeled fresh air fiends and those looking for a cold brew: on-site mountain bike rentals, plus a good selection of local craft beers at the on-site pub, the Noble Pig. The Queen and Murphy room includes (you guessed it!) a Murphy bed, along with proper black-out curtains and complimentary newspapers. Looking for a bit of privacy from your traveling companions? Book the family suite with a partial wall separating the beds.
