The little hamlet of Edgewater
is one of the older communities in the Columbia Valley. Don’t be surprised when you see deer and elk
crossing the road. Every Saturday there is a market. Pick up some fresh eggs, produce and baked goods, and bring them to your vacation rental accommodations. Cabins, as vacation rentals, are a nice alternative to staying in a hotel. Book a holiday home accommodation large enough for a family reunion, or a celebration with friends.
Just 13 kilometers north of Edgewater, you will find Radium Hot Springs
, with its natural spring swimming pool tucked into the edge of a mountain. Discover this wonderful place to unwind. Enjoy the natural beauty. Go backpacking and hike the trails, including the Floe Lake-Hawke Creek trail and the Stanley Glacier Trail. When hiking in the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy Park
, you will not hear the sounds of automobiles, or even that of a helicopter overhead. Roads do not access this area; therefore, hiking on the 85 miles (137 kilometers) of trails in the undisturbed wilderness of the Kootenay National Park
is a sheer pleasure. You may well meet horseback riders along the way. After a day in the great outdoors, return to your accommodations, sit in the hot tub, and enjoy some refreshment. Afterwards, go to your room and tuck yourself between the sheets of your comfortable bed. Vacation rentals can be nice and quiet
. Enjoy a good night’s rest for tomorrow will be another adventurous day.
For the experienced and fit mountain climber
, the first-class mountaineering region of Bugaboo Provincial Park
, to the northwest of Edgewater, will be a challenge - particularly, the North Howser “Tower” and the South Ridge of Bugaboo Spire. For a different-type of challenge, enjoy a pleasurable game of golf
at the Edgewater Hilltop Par 3 course, the 9-hole Spur Valley Greens, or the 18-hole courses at Radium Hot Springs Resort.
After your stay here, continue onward and travel to the sunny interior of British Columbia
, towards the Thompson-Okanagan region
, with its many lakes, waterfalls, forests, vineyards and fruit trees on the hills and, for good measure, verdant agricultural land surrounding some of the towns. Not to be forgotten are the ever popular mountain ski resorts
of the Okanagan: Silver Star and Big White
. Vacation Rentals here will enhance your holiday experience.
