Toward the Last Spike and beyond:
Hike the Rockies.
A small part of them, anyway!
Picture sunshine filtering through a forest of tall Douglas firs.
After crossing a cool, shady creek that tumbles down the mountainside
to a pristine lake, the trail climbs into a glorious alpine meadow
carpeted with wildflowers.
Soak in the hot springs.
Soothe your tired muscles
in the naturally heated mineral pools of Radium, Ainsworth, Halcyon,
Nakusp, Canyon, Lussier, or Fairmont hot springs.
Drive a spike at Craigellachie.
Craigellachie was host to
the historic last spike, which linked Canada by railway from
coast to coast.
Tour the Revelstoke Dam for free.
Take an elevator to the crest
of the 175-metre (575 ft) high Revelstoke Dam.
Visit a few ghost towns.
Check out the famous ghost
town of Sandon.
See the SS Moyie in Kaslo.
Step aboard the worlds
oldest surviving sternwheeler, which once carried passengers
and freight along Kootenay Lake.
Go skiing, boarding, or snowmobiling.
Some of the best powder conditions
in the world are here, making it a mecca for skiers, snowboarders,
Float up the Columbia River.
Float in a raft, just south
of Golden, and enjoy the scenery, birds and wildlife.
Spot elk, deer, bears, and goats.
Inevitably wildlife will
be a part of your visit to the BC Rockies.
Golf on championship courses.
Creatively designed and beautifully
maintained golf courses are found in every corner of the BC Rockies.
Against a backdrop of breathtaking mountain scenery youll
spot everything from scenic nine-hole courses to a concentration
of championship resort courses.
