There are literally hundreds of kilometers of hiking trails accessible right from Kokanee Springs Resort including 10 kilometers directly on site with connections to every type of terrain a hiker could want. If you want an easy low impact walk through the forest, a leisurely stroll through natural wetlands or a rugged, raw mountain trek we've got you covered.

Mountain Biking:

Touring, downhill or extreme we've got it all! There is no end to the possibilities here at Kokanee Springs and it's all right here either on or within a short ride of the Resort. The "East Shore Trail and Bike Association" has created a system of trails in and around Crawford Bay that will one day rival the finest world class facilities but for right now it is a true hidden gem. Bike rentals are available on site.


Experience world class "Big lake" paddling on the calm waters of Crawford Bay and Kootenay Lake. You can explore miles of rugged shoreline right from Kokanee Spring's own beachfront. Bring your own or rent one of our state of the art kayaks right on site and we'll get you to the water. Never kayaked before, no problem, one of our "Adventure Concierges" will teach you!
