Savona, BC

Savona, BC

The picturesque community of Savona, British Columbia, dates back thousands of years when the First Nations Shuswap Band inhabited the region enjoying the abundance of fish and the good hunting. Things changed in the early 1860 when Europeans moved into the area. Gold was the original attraction, but within a few years, ranches with long large herds of beef cattle became the mainstay.

Located at the western end of Kamloops Lake between the BC communities of Cache Creek and Kamloops, Savona is surrounded by a semi-arid terrain of grasslands and hills. Savona makes for a great stopping spot while exploring the neighbourhood.
