ABOUT LUMBY 

There's a feeling that can only be described as refreshed, as a traveler approaches this colourful heritage village away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is the eastern most spawning point for Chinook salmon and it's no wonder they chose this unique place to begin an exciting journey! From Lumby, you can begin your get-away on one of over a hundred trails that meander throughout the Monashees. At the end of the day you can relax on a patio and indulge in something delicious as you re-hash your recent adventures.

Lumby is a vibrant, ever improving and developing community. Nestled at the north eastern edge of the Okanagan, the village location provides an excellent starting point for outdoor adventures...truly a one of a kind place to day trip out of! Whether you are looking to go fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, skiing, boating, swimming, geocaching, snowshoeing or snowmobiling the possibilities are endless!

Located 25 minutes east of Vernon, BC, on the Highway 6 Hot Springs Route and only fifty minutes from the Kelowna International Airport, Lumby is a very accessible place to visit or live. 

Stroll our historical mural walk and Salmon Trail and enjoy a bit of our heritage. Shopping in downtown Lumby reveals a healthy array of businesses all within the ambiance of a small town.

Although the village was incorporated in 1955, its history dates back to 1893 when the town site of forty acres was surveyed and named "Lumby". Prior to that, a small settlement of pioneer farmers and gold miners lived in the White Valley, whose beginnings commenced with the Cherry Creek gold strike in 1862.

The economic drivers in our diverse area include Forestry, Agriculture and Tourism. These rural activities make up a large part of our community's characters. With support from industry, cattle, dairy and feed farms, the Region provides an opportunity for those seeking a rural lifestyle.

Not only is Lumby a fantastic place to visit, it's simply the best place to live. With everything at your fingertips, life in Lumby is very easy going and relaxing. The surroundings are idyllic and the perfect place to raise children or settle down for retirement. Whether you've come to work or to play, you will find that Lumby is an excellent place for both.
