Tour the traditional waters of the Secwepemcuu’l’ecw (Shuswap Nation). Learn the history from a local Knowledge Keeper who will tell you the stories to the sound of their paddle gently guiding you down the South Thompson River. Take in the eagles and hawks soaring, see mountains and historical sites from the view of the path our ancestors have travelled for generations.

Moccasin Trails brings people from around the world on the ancestral paths their people walked, have them taste the food they ate, sing the songs they sang, hear the stories that were passed down orally from generations ago, and travel down the rivers we canoed. In order to truly learn about their culture they felt the only way was to touch, smell, see, hear, and feel it. Their journey started hundreds of years ago but your journey will start right now with them at Moccasin Trails.


The sqlelten7úẃi (Sockeye Salmon) Tour

Tour the traditional waters of the Secwepemc people. Learn the history from a local Knowledge Keeper who will grab your attention with storytelling while the sound of their paddle gently guides you along the Shuswap Lakes. Witness the eagles soaring above you, preparing for the salmon to return to their final destination. A reunion that only happens every four years.

Witness and experience the beauty of the cycle of life as the Pacific Sockeye Salmon return to the Adams River as a spawning adult. Our people have occupied the area surrounding the Adams River since time immemorial, crucial as a food source and trade for our people. We have been celebrating the return of the salmon with food, ceremonies, singing, and dancing for thousands of years.

See mountains and ancient traditional spiritual sites from the view of our ancestors that have travelled these waterways for generations.
