Located in eastern British Columbia, Kootenay Country is a land of fascinating contrasts. The magnificently rugged Valhalla, Monashee, Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges provide spectacular recreational opportunities for backpacking, trail-riding, soaking in hot springs, and some of the finest skiing in Canada, by chairlift, helicopter, and snowcat. The air is pure and piney, the water clean and sparkling.
The numerous sun-filled valleys are renowned for beautiful weather, delicious vegetables and bountiful selections of summer fruits. Dozens of picturesque golf courses are readily accessible to the visitor. An incredible variety of wildlife can be seen throughout the region.
The area has several historic ghost towns that are a reminder of the feverish “Silvery Slocan” silver boom in the late 1800s. Accommodations include first-class cabin elegance to European style elegance, lodges, hostels and campgrounds.
