The friendly community of Lumby, BC, is located at the north end of the beautiful Okanagan Valley just a short drive (25 km/16 mi.) east of the community of Vernon.
Considered the 'Gateway to the Monashees', Lumby is situated at the convergence of the Coldstream, Creighton and Trinity valleys. The Monashee Mountain (Mountains of Peace) offer unlimited outdoor recreation. Shimmering lakes nestle in the mountains and streams and rivers flow to the valleys. The area around Lumby is one of British Columbia's undiscovered gems!
In Lumby you can pan for gold, stroll our historical mural walk and the Salmon Trail, go camping and hiking or arrange to tour the old mining digs in nearby Cherryville. Lumby is the Trail Capital of Canada, and from here you can get-away on one of over a hundred trails that meander throughout the Monashee. The waters are ideal for fishing and canoeing, and as the eastern most spawning point for Chinook salmon, it's no wonder they chose this place to begin an exciting journey.
With its small town congeniality, Lumby is the perfect place to get away from it all. There's a feeling that can only be described as refreshing; as vacationers and travelers approach this colorful heritage village away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Shopping in downtown Lumby reveals a healthy array of businesses all within the reach of a small town … and at the end of the day you can relax on one of our many patios to explore culinary delights.
