Houseboat Capital of Canada and The Gateway to Mara
Situated at the junction of Shuswap Lake and Mara Lake in the Eagle Valley, the community of Sicamous is known as the Houseboat Capital of Canada.
South of Sicamous is the small community of Mara , located on the Shuswap River. Mara enjoys a gentle climate, relaxed lifestyle, and abundant recreational and cultural activities.
East of Sicamous is the community Malakwa, located off the Trans-Canada Highway 1 in the Eagle Valley of the Shuswap. Rugged mountains, glistening glaciers, lush forests, tumbling waterfalls, and crystal-clear lakes abound, making the area between Sicamous and Revelstoke a photographer’s paradise.
