Hiking: The amount of incredible and accessible hiking trails will exhaust even the most avid mountaineer visiting Nelson.
Biking: The mountain bike trails in the Nelson area are the stuff dreams are made of! There is everything from gentle railway grades, to hard core DH for the adrenalin junkies, to technical blast runs with tons of freestyle stunts to keep you wired until the brewpub! Explore some self guided trails or join a group …. but just do it!

Ainsworth Hot Springs: Just 40 minutes north of Nelson these healing waters have been welcoming guests since the 1930’s. These are the only hotsprings offering a horseshoe cave filled with healing hot water flowing from the earth for you to steam and soak in…truly an experience not to miss! The Lower Kootenay Band of the Ktunaxa people bring a unique First Nation brand to the hospitality industry. After you soak, be sure to enjoy some of the fresh, local, indigenous inspired food at the Ktunaxa Grill overlooking the pools.
Fletcher Falls: North of Ainsworth en route to Kaslo you can stop and walk down to the waterfront and over to the waterfalls. Just a 15 minute walk down to the lake and a 5 minute walk in to the falls. A great place for a picnic or hike in camping!
Kaslo: Nestled in the mountains 1.5 hours north of Nelson this is a little town with a lot of charm. Steeped in history, you can tour the Moyie sternwheeler and get transported back to an era when the lake was the only highway bringing people into this rugged landscape. Come in midsummer for the famous “Kaslo Jazz etc festival”. Picture performers on a floating stage with spectators dancing on the beach with mountains rising over 10,000 feet from the lake as the backdrop…what’s not to like?! The restaurants are delicious and the Angry Hen brewbub is awesome….well worth the trip!
TheArtisans of Crawford Bay: Take the Kootenay Lake Ferry (longest free scenic ferry crossing in the world! 35 minutes) from Balfour (40 minutes north of Nelson) to Kootenay Bay and drive 7 km to Crawford Bay. Walk from one unique studio to another and watch the artisans at work. Step into a variety of structures made from logs to strawbales where you can ask questions and purchase crafts directly from the makers. Pottery, textiles, forged iron accessories, blown glass, and traditional handmade brooms (that were used in the Harry Potter series) are just some of the items you’ll find!
Sandon and Idaho Peak: Visit a bonafide ghost town! Back in the day (beginning in 1891) Sandon was the centre of what was the richest silver-lead producing region in Canada. What was once a booming town of 5000 people is now occupied by little more than a caretaker. Still, it boasts a cool little shop in the summer months, a hydro electric power plant (that sells power to the government!), a summer music festival (Valley of the Ghosts Music Festival), as well as a 2 km gentle hike to a look out with breathtaking 360 views of the surrounding area. Take this hike from mid July to mid August for the most incredible display of wild flowers you’ll ever see!
New Denver: This picturesque mountain town is nestled in the Selkirk Mountains on the eastern shores of the Slocan Lake. It has been the setting for several movies including “A simple Curve” and “Snow Falling on Cedars” and you’ll see why as you wander through the scenic streets and the lapping lakeshore with awe-inspiring views. Visit the The Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre with it’s important history and unique Japanese Heiwa Teien Peace Garden.
The Slocan Valley: Drive south of New Denver through the pastoral landscape of the Slocan Valley. Home to organic farms, quaint family bakeries, earthy cafes, and quirky shops, this valley boasts a rich mix of draft dodger and Doukhobor history and still attracts and houses people of the same ilk. A blast from a colourful past! The Frog Peak Cafe at the south end of the valley is a local gem that is not to be missed! Open until 4 pm, locals beat a path to it’s door for fabulous breakfast and lunch.
