We are pleased that you have chosen to visit our Radium Getaway in the heart of the Columbia Valley, which is nestled amidst the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
This 2 bedroom, 2 bath plus den condo is one of the few 'penthouses' found within the lovely little village of Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia. You'll feel like you have your own little cabin in the mountains! Comfortably sleep 8 people in 4 beds with pillow top mattresses! The rustic and elegant pine and antique furnishings create an ambiance of relaxation and serenity.
Savor freshly baked cinnamon sticky buns on your deck, overlooking the mountains of the Columbia Valley, while sipping fragrant coffee...golf at one of the numerous links nearby; ski at Panorama; hike the HooDoos; take a day trip to Banff, Golden or Fairmont; raft down the Kootenay or Kicking Horse or even Toby Creek...so much to do everyday...and at the end of the day...soak in the 40+C waters of Radium Hot Springs—open year round! Or plunge into the cold pool for a refreshing energizer! Curl up with a good book or munch popcorn while watching a movie. Take a stroll through the village, and watch for mountain sheep and goats or deer ambling along.
Radium Hot Springs is set in breathtaking Kootenay National Park, a UNESCO Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. Immerse yourself in three of BC's most invigorating hot springs: Radium Hot Springs, Fairmont Hot Springs and Lussier Hot Springs. Each offers dramatic settings and soothing, mineral-rich pools, your source for rejuvenating pleasures in the area.
The park's stunning landscape ranges from forested valleys to towering summits. Resident wildlife include Bighorn Sheep, Grizzly Bears as well as Golden Eagles and songbirds. You can swim, cycle, camp and hike all summer long or try cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter.
Bugaboo Provincial Park boasts the largest glaciers in the ancient Purcell Mountains. Hard-core climbers take on the glaciers, while day hikers explore the park's varied trails. The world-renowned Columbia River Wetlands are a vital habitat for an abundant wildlife population including hundreds of bird species.
Windsurfers, canoeists, kayakers, recreational boaters/wave runners and swimmers gather around the 15 km (9.3 mi) long Windermere Lake, exploring nearby James Chabot Provincial Park and Kinsmen Beach and Park. Cyclists can explore single track and logging roads.
Anglers fish the pristine mountain lakes and glacier fed creeks of the Columbia Valley. Fish species resident in Lake Windermere include trout (bull, rainbow, cutthroat), kokanee and whitefish. Anyone fishing in British Columbia must have an appropriate license. Paddlers can navigate the Columbia River on a scenic day trip.
