Enjoy some of the most spectacular hiking in the Kootenay Rockies.
On the doorstep of Kootenay National Park, which is crisscrossed with over 200km/125mi of trails, the village of Radium Hot Springs makes a perfect base for exploring a wealth of natural beauty. Licensed guides can help make the most of the area's hiking opportunities.
One of the most highly rated hikes in Canada, this 4-6 day epic backpacking journey (rated advanced) traverses a massive limestone cliff, replete with alpine meadows and hanging glaciers. In total, the hike covers 54km/34mi and negotiates three mountain passes along the way. Access is via Highway 93 from either the Paint Pots trailhead (recommended) or the Floe Lake trailhead. Either way, it will be necessary to figure out transportation back along the highway to a vehicle. Be prepared for encounters with wildlife and, during the months of July and August, lots of other hikers.
