Nelson

Surrounded by the Selkirk Mountains on the shore of the west arm of Kootenay Lake, Nelson offers the best of both worlds - heritage tours alongside an outdoor adventurer's playground. The "Queen City of the Kootenays" has something for everyone, so no one ever leaves disappointed. With the highest number of heritage buildings per capita in the region, Nelson has a number of historical tours to enjoy. Choose from a walking tour or motoring tour, and view schools, churches, and residential homes, as well as the downtown core. 

Or catch a ride on Streetcar #23 and take in the spectacular scenery along Kootenay Lake. The tram runs from May through to October, and the 20-minute tour is the perfect chance to sit back, relax, and take in the breathtaking beauty of the Selkirk Mountains. If the adventurer inside you wants to get out and explore, venture out to Cody Caves and try your hand at spelunking. Take a canoe or kayak out past the shores of Kootenay Lake, or charter an aerial tour of the Kokanee Glacier. The adventures are endless! 

Nelson is found on Highway 3A, 43 km (27 mi.) northeast of Castlegar. Buses travel through the city on scheduled routes. Airlines fly into Castlegar from Vancouver and Calgary. Population: 9,694 Elevation: 516 m (1,692 ft.)
