Bald Eagles in a tree
The Kootenay Rockies attracts wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world for one thing: Rocky Mountain wildlife.
Interested in guided wildlife tours? Witness bighorn sheep bashing horns on a Head Banger tour in Radium Hot Springs, take a bear watching tour at Grizzly Bear Lodge or watch for otters, beaver, birds and moose while drifting through the internationally-significant Columbia River Wetlands.
The national and provincial parks are excellent places to view large animals. Bighorn sheep and mountain goats are often seen along roadways and even from hot springs, while lush valleys and meadows attract moose, bear and deer. The Columbia Wetlands are a fantastic place to go bird watching solo or as part of a tour.
