Located at the junction of the Nicola and Thompson Rivers, the community of Spences Bridge treasures a rich history. On the Cariboo Wagon Road this natural stopping point provided crossing of the Thompson River for gold seekers headed north, and access east up the Nicola Valley into ranching country or on to Kamloops.
Spences Bridge provides an abundance of vacation opportunities for many interests. Enjoy a cool riverside campsite in the heat of the summer and breathe in the pure valley air; watch the soaring eagles, playful osprey or majestic mountain sheep that call Spences Bridge home. Practice the age-old hobby of train watching, try your hand at some gold panning along the shore or relax for an afternoon of fishing.
