Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, is a small city located about halfway between Vancouver and the Alberta border. Kamloops is conveniently located off the Trans-Canada Highway, a highway that spans more than eight thousand kilometers, clear across ten Canadian provinces from the Pacific Ocean to Atlantic Ocean. It is locally designated as Highway 1 and it is one of the world's longest national highways, along with the Trans-Siberian Highway and Australia’s own Highway 1. If you are taking a drive across Canada, or less ambitiously a drive across the Rocky Mountains from Vancouver to Calgary, then Kamloops is an excellent stop to take.

Kamloops is in reach of many of British Columbia and Alberta’s highlights. Skiing in Whistler or Banff is but a short drive away; wild animals such as moose, bears, elk, deer, mountain goats, and pumas are possibly spotted on the Conservation lands. The massive and deep glaciers of Glacier National Park and the stunning beauty of nearby Lake Louise are not to be missed.

Kamloops is best explored by car, as public transportation is not as readily available as in bigger locales. However, it is possible to travel to Kamloops and onward by Greyhound buses. If without a vehicle, be sure to do research ahead of time, so that you are able to get to your hostel without difficulty. Kamloops is an excellent family location, and has many activities to enjoy. Activities in Kamloops include skiing at Sun Peaks, Kamloops Wildlife Park, walking along the nature trails at McArthur Island Park, canoeing or kayaking at Lac le Jeune, and the opportunity to visit several museums documenting local Native artifacts and their way of life. All activities are not too far from Kamloops hostels.

The natural beauty of this area should not be missed. Options for hostels in Kamloops are limited, so be sure to book in advance!
