Kayaks on Beach

Kayaking on pristine Kootenay Lake is not to be missed! Imagine paddling along the ancient shores of Kootenay Lake in a colourful sea kayak. Experience the pure joy of exploring this incredible lake — with the assistance of the capable and friendly folks at Kaslo Kayaking.

Never been in a kayak?  Always wanted to try a stand up paddle (SUP) board? This is a perfect opportunity to try it all. No crowds, no pressure. The guides will ensure you are totally comfortable before you set out so your first experience will be both exciting and enjoyable.


Get ready to feel the wind in your hair as you soar at speeds up to 100 kilometres per hour, high above the scenic canyon stretched out below you. The skilled guides at Kokanee Mountain Zipline take care of everything for you. All you have to do is show up, take that first step and enjoy what gravity and nature have in store for you.

With nearly a mile of ziplines laid out between two picturesque BC provincial parks, these exciting tours offer jaw-dropping views of the mountain ranges and Kootenay Lake below.


Cody Caves

At Cody Caves you can explore a wild yet fragile, underground world that has been meticulously sculpted by years upon years of glacier-fed waters. Owner/operator Lee Hollis and his professional guides offer a caving experience suitable for novices and experienced spelunkers alike. No experience is necessary.

Your guide will provide educational interpretation while escorting you through this fragile environment of pristine soda straws, stalactites, stalagmites, calcite and sedimentary rock formations. 


balfour golf course

Just minutes from Wing Creek Resort, the Kaslo Golf Club offers a unique challenge for golfers of all skill levels. Rich in history and charm, the nine-hole course features challenging topography and stunning views nestled between the Purcell and Selkirk Mountain ranges and perched over Kootenay Lake.

Established in 1923, this is both the oldest course in the Kootenays and one of the most beautiful in the region. Add in the magnificent modern timber frame clubhouse and great food and it becomes a must for every golfer.

You may also wish to challenge yourself at some of the other beautiful championship courses on the shores of Kootenay Lake including: Balfour Golf Course, Granite Pointe Golf Club and Kokanee Springs Golf Course.


 Hiking Idaho Peak

Wing Creek Resort is in the centre of an area brimming with world-class hiking. This area, stretching from the Selkirk Mountains in the west and the Purcell Mountains in the east, consists of soaring mountains, clear bubbling streams, forest-covered valleys and large inland lakes. We offer trails that can challenge and satisfy hikers of all abilities, with a large number of short and longer hikes easily accessible to our guests.

Take time out to visit the many heritage buildings, old mining ghost towns, abandoned railways and quarries.

Wildlife thrives here too, so keep your camera at the ready to photograph for deer, elk, moose, caribou, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, black bears and grizzly bears. Overhead, watch for bald eagles, blue herons and osprey, and in the lakes you’re sure to see waterfowl galore.

There are several excellent local charter companies offering premier fishing packages for some of the best fishing anywhere. Kootenay Lake is world famous as home to the giant Gerrard rainbow trout. Bull trout are also plentiful and make for some great fishing adventures and tales.

Kootenay Lake never freezes over in the winter, so it is perfect for year-round fishing. Knowledgeable locals will tell you what’s biting, where and what lures to use. You can get fishing licences for just a day or for the year, locally or online.
