Your moment to explore.

From historical landmarks to hockey, birding to baseball, Oliver is where you can learn a thing (or two), and have fun at the same time.

Explore the original town site at Fairview, or see how they used to do things in the gold rush days at the local jail – it’s not used for anything now but photo-ops and tall tales. Oliver’s history is intricately tied to the heady boom-and-bust days of six shooters and dreams of striking it rich, even if those days didn’t last very long. The museum offers a snapshot of early settler life, and is entirely run by volunteers so there’s likely a good story or two waiting for you.

Burn off some energy at the community centre’s outdoor saltwater pool, or wind down with a walk to the beach at Tuc-el-Nuit Lake; its non-motorized mantra means hours of uninterrupted floating for those seeking quiet relaxation. Skydive? Get a handle on high altitude at the Oliver airport and see the town from a new perspective.

Sun worshipper or snow lover, history buff or adventure seeker, your next tall tale is closer than you think.
