In the Kootenay Rockies are three main tourist centres; Fernie, the largest community in the mountains, offering plenty of interest and an ideal base for walking, mountain biking, climbing, rafting and mine tours of British Columbia. Golden, which stands at the meeting point of 5 National Parks, is a great place to take British Columbia accommodation secluded high in the hills, with wild nature all around you. A British Columbia chalet or mountain lodge in Golden is perfect for hang-gliding, hiking, biking, riding and ice-climbing. The third main destination in the Kootenay Rockies is Kimberley.
