Do It In Town…Do It Outdoors
"Add to your life’s highlight reel by borrowing a bit of our spirit of people and place. Castlegar is hub-central for exploring life’s tickle trunk of outdoor activity in the West Kootenays.” So says our tourism ad, which celebrates both our geography and the laid-back friendliness of our people. In Castlegar, the mountains meet and the rivers converge. From river parks to cultural history on display in everything from events to our international Sculpture Walk, Castlegar has much to enjoy in its own right. Outside the City, the West Kootenays is a rather spiffy place to keep busy entertaining yourself. Downhill skiing, ‘affordable awe’ in regional championship golf courses, mountain biking on serene to extreme, rivers to fish, pristine lakes to boat or stare at ripples…..we could go on.
