Experience Nelson

Old Growth, Breathe deep

The backcountry in this area still offers some splendid sights. If you do not see the fleeting Grizzly or Black Bear or the Kokanee Beer Bear (which maybe you do not want to see too close up!) you can depend on the solid roots of the beautiful ancient Cedar Groves. Come listen, some people still say they can hear them singing!
For the avid hiking family vacation, maybe a home outside of Nelson will make your adventure vacation more accessible. Kaslo, Meadow Creek and Duncan Lake are all located at the North end of Kootenay Lake and at the foot of a number of glacial fields, offering a vast selection of day trips.
