Escorted Rail Tours Kamloops

Picturesque British Columbia

The city of Kamloops is located at the confluence of the North Thompson River and the South Thompson River. The name 'Kamloops' means "meeting of the waters" in the local aboriginal language. On a rail tour to Kamloops, you can enjoy time exploring the city and the surrounding mountain scenery of British Columbia. Nearby is Kamloops Lake, which has beautiful scenic surroundings and offers enjoyable boat rides. The city of Kamloops is a transportation hub for the region, where two major rivers and two major highways meet. The city also has the main railway line; perfect for a rail tour to the town.

Kamloops enjoys warm summers that are usually dry, which creates a beautiful climate and an enjoyable season for walks and hiking trips. However, on a winter rail holiday in Kamloops you will see the scenery at its most picturesque. The town and surrounding forests and mountains are covered in a thick blanket of snow throughout the winter months.
