The world-famous parks, abundant wildlife and snow-capped peaks of the Kootenay Rockies extend almost as far as your imagination.
Visitors to this region are surrounded by mountains rising 3,000m/9,843ft, some of Canada's highest waterfalls, long stretches of pebble and sandy beaches, roaring rivers as well as alpine meadows carpeted with wildflowers. This habitat is home to mountain goats, grizzly bears, bald eages and many other species of wildlife.
Wander through dense forest, past sparkling creeks, along the shores of gem-coloured lakes teeming with fish. Slip into one of the region's many hot springs or hike alongside old-growth forest and rugged inland lakes.
