Welcome to the Kootenay Rockies region of British Columbia!
Our region is home to pristine rivers, lakes, waterfalls, beaches, mineral hot springs, alpine meadows and snow-capped mountains. Four of British Columbia's seven national parks are located here.
Outdoor water pursuits include canoeing, boating, wind-surfing, and whitewater rafting. The area is also internationally renowned for its abundant fishing locales.
On land, the region is one of Canada's pre-eminent destinations for golfing and mountain biking, while the many backcountry lodges, inns and guest ranches offer luxury accommodations and getaways in natural settings. Camping opportunities abound. This is also your chance to visit wonderfully restored heritage towns, thriving arts communities and gold rush boomtowns.
During the winter, the Kootenay Rockies offers some of the continent's finest powder skiing and snowboarding, from head-rushing descents to great expanses of groomed cross-country trails.
