Directly south of the city lies Mount Ida, to the west Fly Hills, and across Shuswap lake lies Bastion Mountain.

The largest employer in the Salmon Arm area is the forest industry and related businesses; however, due to economic conditions, the former Federated Co-Op sawmill has been out of operation since 2008, although the co-located plywood production facility has generally remained operational.
