Throughout the region, no matter where you decide to take a rental chalet in British Columbia’s mountains, you will be able to go hiking, mountaineering, climbing, horse riding, mountain biking, white water rafting, sailing (on mountain lakes), bird watching, skiing (in season), wine tasting or fly fishing.

Places to holiday in British Columbia’s Mountains, Canada

The Kootenay Rockies, “British Columbia’s Mountain Playground”, are breathtakingly beautiful, especially during spring when the peaks are snow capped, the rivers gurgle with fresh melt water and the mountain meadows are awash with the colour of blossoming flowers. However, far from being only for the eyes, Kootenay is one of the leading outdoor activity centres in British Columbia, offering white water rafting, hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, golf, hiking, mountaineering, bird watching and even bathing in the warm waters of the many natural hot springs which adorn the mountains.

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. Kimberley is a ‘Bavarian City’ high in the mountains, which has turned into not only a world beating ski resort, but also a favourite golf resort during the summer months, meaning that British Columbian holiday cottages in Kimberly are in use all year round.

Whistler is the most famous British Columbia resort. Both skiing and summer activities thrive, but it is the winter sports which have bought Whistler to the forefront of tourist’s minds.
