Walk into a frozen waterfall - you'll feel like you're in a fairy tale

Canim falls is about a 30 minute drive from South Point Resort. Once you are parked, it is 15 walk into the falls. Strap on some snowshoes if the snow is deep, pack a lunch and experience something out of this world. You will never get tired of these falls, no matter what the season.

Snowshoeing into Canim Falls, BC

Once you've hit the trail, there are several stops on route to the trail for great photography and group shots. You'll also see Mahood Falls across the river on your way to Canim Falls.  


Stand in awe as you witness nature at it's best. Bring some hot chocolate and a lunch and listen to the amazing sounds around you.

Starry skies at canim lake

Don't forget to look up.

One of our favourite pastimes at the lake is actually stargazing. It is incredible how you can see the Milky Way right above you, and all the skies without the city lights wrecking your view. Bring your telescope for an even cooler experience. Book Now.


We have lots of beach, and lots of sky to gaze out there. Set up your scope, or bring a ground of star-crazed friends and enjoy the shores of South Point.


With the starry skies, sometimes you get some incredible moons. Check the schedule for full moons if you want to see something real special in the winter. It'll light up the whole lake.
