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.

Kayaking on Kootenay Lake


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 Springs' own beachfront.

Bring your own or rent one from our Adventure Centre and we'll get you to the water. Never kayaked before? No problem; one of our Adventure Concierges will teach you!
