Welcome to Ashcroft

A place worth visiting!

We hope you enjoy our picturesque oasis along the Thompson River.  We boast one of the driest climates in all of Canada where summers are warm and winters are mild.  If shoveling snow is not your favourite pastime then Ashcroft is where you want to be.  Most winters the shovels only come out 3 or 4 times.

In the spring the cactus bloom along the hillsides of sage and sand. Our diversity of migratory birds is hard to match.  Fruit trees blossom as the community bursts into life.

Summer brings our warm weather with temperatures into the 30's Celsius and with careful watering we can grow almost anything. Fresh fruit and produce are available.  Bugs are seldom a bother making outdoor living nuisance free.

Fall brings cooler weather, still wonderful and warm through the day. The trees turn colour, the salmon are running, and the stands are bursting with fall produce for winter storage.

Outdoor activities are plentiful, hiking surrounding hills brings photo opportunities of our expansive vistas. Bring your bicycle and enjoy easy riding through our downtown area.  Stroll along the streets and view the many beautiful mosaics found throughout the community.  We offer a respite from the hustle and bustle of our nearby cities; life is a manageable pace in Ashcroft, that's one of the reasons we say: "Wellness Awaits You" in Ashcroft.
