Castlegar offers access to a variety of seasonal activities both in town and in the surrounding Kootenay Rockies region.

Golfing, hiking, and cycling all take advantage of the area's rolling waterway-cut terrain. Wildlife viewing and camping are great options at Castlegar's parks.

Castlegar also plays a role in Doukhobor (Russian immigrants fleeing religious persecution in the early 20th century) history, which can be experienced at several heritage sites in town, including the Doukhobor Discovery Centre.
