Welcome to Blue River, BC

"Jewel of the Yellowhead" has been the crowning phrase describing Blue River, B.C. since the first pioneers began exploring and settling in the North Thompson Valley years ago.

Sparkling glacier-fed lakes, breathtaking mountain peaks and intriguing wildlife welcome visitors from around the world to Blue River throughout the year.

Located half way between Kamloops and Jasper, Blue River is the perfect rest stop for a Yellowhead picnic, heli-ski adventure, mountain bike experience, or a snowmobile tour. Unlimited lakes, rivers, streams and waterfalls beckon you to relax and enjoy the pristine wilderness.

If you love the outdoors, Blue River won't disappoint your spirit of adventure.
