Discover the Kootenay Rockies
Kootenay National Park covers a good portion of the southeastern region of the Canadian Rockies and is located north of Radium to Springs. It’s the place to spend your days exploring the canyon, relaxing in the hot springs, and enjoying a variety of recreational activities around the Paint Pods. The park was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 but you can venture beyond the park to visit ghost towns and communities nearby.
For many visitors, a trip to the Kootenay Rockies is a journey into the wild. It offers a wealth of opportunities to go backcountry hiking and you can enjoy a kayaking adventure or biking tour in natural territory. Relax in some of the world’s most beautiful mineral pools and hot springs or attend some of the seasonal events and festivals in the region for a taste of local culture. Many towns around the region are home to art galleries and other cultural attractions.
