Outdoor activity tours in the Kootenay Rockies region make the most of big mountain ranges, thick forests and remote backcountry.
There are many guided hiking tour operators that can help create a safe and fun experience in the mountains. For a whole new level of adventure and relaxation, stay in a heli-hiking lodge for high-alpine guided hiking and mountaineering. Horseback riding and mountain biking tours are some other ways enjoy the outdoors.
ATV tours are a great way to explore old mining roads, abandoned rail tracks, and mountain-top trails. Toby Creek Adventures at Panorama Mountain Village offers ATV mountain trips, leading riders to an elevation of 2,727m/9,000ft in the Purcell Mountains. ATV tour operators are also located at Revelstoke, Nakusp, and New Denver.
Stay in backcountry lodges in accommodation that ranges from the simple and rustic to luxurious affairs with spas and gourmet dining.
