Sorrento is in the Shuswap area, which is well-know as a summer vacation destination. With long, sunny days and a dry, temperate climate, it lends itself to many outdoor activities or relaxation. Sorrento is on the south shore of Shuswap Lake but there are many other rivers and lakes in the area all providing opportunities to get out and experience what’s on offer. House boating, kayaking, water skiing, fishing, swimming and other water sports are all here. Hiking and nature trails can be found in the several Provincial Parks. If you are here in October, this is a fascinating place to visit and see the waters turn red with the run of the Adams River sockeye salmon. Cross-country skiing is popular in the area in the wintertime.
