Valemount (population: 1,995) is surrounded by the Rocky, Monashee, and Cariboo mountain ranges, and a short drive to Mount Robson Provincial Park.
This highway location and close proximity to the park translates into easy travel and access to incredible outdoor activities. These include hiking, bird watching, camping, fishing, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.
Things to Do
In summer, canoe through the R.W. Starratt Wildlife Sanctuary, along the McLennan River, or in Kinbasket Lake. The former also features a hiking trail system to excellent bird watching locales. Those seeking more fast-moving waters can hook up with Mount Robson Whitewater Rafting or Stellar Descents and raft the legendary Fraser River.
