If your idea of a great time is making a big splash in a warm swimming lake, dipping your paddle in a fast-flowing river, or finding an isolated fishing spot teeming with trout, then head to the Kootenay Rockies.

Set against stunning mountain backdrops, the lakes and rivers in this region are ideal for canoeing and kayaking, river rafting, fishing, boating, cycling, windsurfing, waterskiing and nature walks.

For a relaxing experience, soak in one of the natural hot springs, take a dip in a brisk lake on a hot summer day, or wander along a beach with towering mountains as part of the view.
