    • 1st week in Feb

      Vancouver Island Yesterday

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

    • We will be driving from Whistler through to Jasper and staying overnight on way.

      by cagey4woftam Online Now Jan 5, 2015 at 6:01 PM

      The question what is better, to stay at Kamloops or Sun Peaks. We will only be staying one night but is there more to see or do at Sun Peaks?

      Transfers from Vancouver Airport YVR to Kamloops

      by BernadetteBevan Online Now Sep 26, 2014 at 4:30 AM

      Hi - I'm travelling from the UK to Kamloops via Vancouver. I cannot afford the additional cost of flying from YVR to Kamloops. I also don't drive so car hire is out of the question. I understand there is a Greyhound depot in Vancouver (about 45 mins from the airport) but that seems impractical to get to as I will have luggage.

      My friend who usually collects me and drives me to Kamloops has a car but it will be out of action for the winter. There are no trains on the day that I arrive in Vancouver and as it's an 8 hour journey it feels unnecessarily long after a 9 hour flight from the UK.

      I have had a quick look at private companies who will drive you but the price is well in excess of $600.

      Can anyone suggest an alternative way to travel to Kamloops that isn't going to cost me the earth? I'm arriving in Vancouver at 14:20 on 13th November and flying back to the UK on 20th November at 16:05.

      Thank you in advance. :)

      Potentially Moving to Kamloops: Insights?

      by Babzz Online Now Mar 29, 2007 at 12:59 PM

      Hello, I'm possibly attending TRU this September for 2 years (grad studies). I'd like to hear some input about what Kamloops and the area are like, just general thoughts, things to do, recommendations, anything really. It's tough making such a big decision from across the country. I wish I could visit first, but that's not a possibility. So far I've heard all good things about how beautiful the region is. Many thanks :)

    • Two River Junction performers

      by auby Online Now Oct 26, 2006 at 10:43 AM

      We attended the Two River Junction Musical Revue on September 24, 2006. We greatly enjoyed the production – the individuals who portrayed Laura & Bill were outstanding. Unfortunately, we failed to record/remember the names of the actress/actors who were part of the review. We would appreciate being informed of the names of the six individuals in the roles of: Laura, Billy, the Mounty, the conductor, & Billy’s two accomplices.

    • What to do ?

      by smiler_girl Online Now Jan 10, 2006 at 2:16 PM


      Myself and 2 friends arrive in Kamloops at lunchtime and leave the following morning - its Weds March 8th and in the evening we are going to go to the ice hockey game. Never been to one - we are from Australia - and it seems to be the only one that is one at the time we are in a city!!
      However, what is there to do from when we arrive to the game - just wander around town? I know we don't have heaps of time but is there anything that we should see? Plus where is a good place to get something to eat before the game - a good local place - a few beers and a good meal type of place - with good atmosphere!!

      Thanks in advance!

    • Activities around town

      by hikamloops Online Now Oct 18, 2005 at 1:33 AM

      I work at the old courthouse hostel which sees over 9000 guests a year from all over the world, and I've noticed in the winter months that activites in the town have really lightened. Is there any activites that happen on a weekly basis, or special things that are going on??? If you could please reply so that we can inform our guests, that would be fantastic, thank you! Oh, and is the free 2-stepping lessons at CJ's on Wednesday or Friday... I can never seem to get ahold of them, and I have read that it is on Wednesday, and have heard it is on Friday, could someone clarify.. thanks!

      One day to go and we are on our way to the Canadian Rockies! Checking all those wonderful VT member sites that give so much information about this area (Ann75 & Waalewiener to name just a couple) just for those extra couple of tips pointing to places and restaurants that we would not think of going to BUT... We are stopping in Kamloops for one night while travelling through on the Rocky Mountaineer but there is only one tipped restaurant for this place (thanks to Vic5). Has anyone got any favourites that they have been to here? Many thanks for your replies Andy
