Mountain biking, road biking and motor biking are all popular activities in the area, and hikers of all experience levels will enjoy everything from short walks along the extensive local trail network to day hikes, peak scrambles and extended multi-day hikes in the pristine West Kootenay mountains.


Kootenay Lake is lovely for a cool water swim, with kayak and paddleboard rentals and lessons available. Secret beaches and “let’s get naked in the Kootenays” swim spots can also be found if you ask a local.
