"Sometimes you are lucky enough to find heaven on earth. Sometimes you are lucky enough to share it with loved ones. And sometimes this spot is so far in the middle of nowhere, that no one else knows where you are!"

Have you experienced this too, while exploring the Kootenays?

Discover one of the 8 hot springs for a therapeutic soak and then add in your favourites, or soon to be favourites, ‘watering-holes’ to energize the body.

Do you have favourite craft beer, cider, coffee, distillery or winery in the Kootenays? Share your fave!

"It was like arriving at a fairytale mountain: sharp granite peaks, shimmering blue lakes and blankets of lush pine forest." - one traveller noted on the route through Nakusp & New Denver.

Have you driven this route (highway 23 to 6)? When?

Fun Fact: Tamarack Trees (or larch trees) are home in the Kootenays. And unlike fir trees each year their needles turn yellow/orange and create a golden carpet on our hiking & biking trails!

This fall check out the 'Colourful Summit Ridge Walks" at Panorama Mountain Resort (Sept 15, 16, 22 & 23)!
