This European-style village is 100% Canadian
The Sun Peaks village appears to be a European transplant. The well-planned community means that not only is your event in a beautiful setting, surrounded by 360 degrees of mountains, but accommodation is conveniently located within walking distance. Your event attendees will be pleased to park their cars for the duration of their stay and walk to every event location. In the evenings, they can meander through the village walkway to the local shops and restaurants with ease.

Along with the architecture, the welcoming atmosphere should also be noted. Sun Peaks locals are disarmingly friendly, unwaveringly inclusive and instinctively open-hearted. It’s hard not to feel a sense of belonging in this community, so expect a tough farewell when it’s time to go back home.
