Welcome to the Kootenays, the ultimate outdoor playground.
Most Kootenaians represent themselves as clean, green, outdoor enthusiasts. We are people who have chosen the spectacularly scenic, healthy lifestyle offered us by easy access to the mountains, rivers and lakes. In the spring we focus on hiking, biking, being on the water or in the mountains... there are endless ways to entertain ourselves in the spring. Come for a visit, we'll show you!
