Experience the Nicola Valley

Welcome to our stories, experiences
and a whole lot of Merritt adventures!

We are a team of community story tellers (some refer to us as bloggers) who enjoy sharing our Merritt adventures and experiences as we explore throughout the Nicola Valley region of  Merritt, British Columbia, Canada. However, all of us come from various backgrounds with our own personal passions and interests.  Therefore, as a group,  it is our mission to inspire, educate and share with you the many experiences we enjoy here in Nicola Valley as we work, play and live everyday to its fullest.

The new website will allow those both near and far to see for themselves what we have to offer. The spotlight will be placed on local businesses and organizationsto promote products, services and events. The exposure will entice people to visit and support these hardworking folks in the valley. The program makes it easy to book a trip to the region, with recommendations and insights from local resident bloggers.

Jackie TegartMLA - Legislative Assembly of British Columbia


I am really excited about future of tourism in the Merritt and the Nicola Valley area. A strong team of bloggers are writing almost daily about the many opportunities and adventures we have to offer in this area. The opportunity to tell the world about our hidden gem by local residents is, to me, priceless.

Tony LuckMerritt City Councilor


We are very excited about this project and specifically how it showcases and supports local businesses here in Merritt. Tourism dollars are such a huge source of income for so many of Merritt’s business owners, but the work that Tourism Nicola Valley and eh Canada have done on building this “Experience Nicola Valley” brand is also keeping people here to shop local and renewing interest in exploring their own back yards, which is amazing.

Meagan Preston

Unlike any other

This is a very exciting project, and will expose Merritt and the Nicola Valley to yet another great asset….. “The Blogging Program”. Tourists like to read about “real life experiences” , and that is what they will see. This program is unlike any other that has been launched in Merritt and the Nicola Valley. We want people to come and see what we have here, and better yet experience all of it…. From a Community Economic Development view this is yet another opportunity provided by Tourism Nicola Valley to the business community.

Mae KetterCommunity Futures Nicola Valley

Benefit to our community

The bloggers have written about the wonders of Merritt and the Nicola Valley-the geography, the sunny days, the community events and attractions, the food, the outdoor adventures, the art and culture. I know this new venture will be a benefit to our community and will attract new visitors, new residents, and new businesses, and will inspire those of us who call the Nicola Valley home.

Growing up in Merritt

“I think my family grew up in the best place in the whole world, so many adventures!”

If you like to go camping, hiking or spending time in nature, then you will love it!

Merritt and the Nicola Valley have the most beautiful rolling hills and pristine lakes. If you like to go camping, hiking or spending time in nature, then you will love it! An added bonus are the warm and friendly people.

Lisa OlsonPublisher, Orchard & Vine Magazine

Our favorite place to camp has always been Monck Park.

We have camped in BC Parks all over the Province, but our favourite has always been Monck Park. We love the Nicola Valley and this campground and park like no other!

M&F GurneySalt Spring Island, BC

It is a great, historic BC town offering many splendid home-cooking cafés and a lovely walk around town.

When you drive the Coquihalla between Hope and Kamloops or Kelowna, make sure you plan a rest stop in Merritt.
Take an hour, get off the highway, bypass the franchise outlets and get into town. It is a great, historic BC town offering many splendid home-cooking cafés and a lovely walk around town. If you are a bit adventurous, drive or hike up to one of two lookouts for a panorama of the town, the Valley, and a nice introduction to BC’s cattle country.
Merritt also affords a couple of easy-going walks along the Coldwater and Nicola rivers. When heading south, stopping in Merritt offers one of the last opportunities to relax and take in some fresh country air. It’s well worth a stop for coffee, a terrific bowl of soup, and a wee walk-about.

Simply stunning drive

We drove through Logan Lake to Merritt, on our way to Vancouver. Outstanding! Simply stunning, as is the Arts Centre.

Expect 48 hours before we get back to you.

We may or may not get back to you right away. Fortunately we are not near a computer at this time which means we are currently out and about playing outdoors exploring the Nicola Valley region, talking with the locals,  looking for our next Merritt adventure. It may be 48 hours until we poke our heads out again.  

We will get back to you as soon as we can, promise. But it will depend on how long the adventure and conversations last. Word of caution! We have been known to over adventure once in awhile.
