Destination guide

Revel in the great outdoors in Revelstoke

It was once an isolated spot in the Kootenay Rockies, but the Canadian Pacific Railway reinvented Revelstoke as a haven for outdoor adventure and a travel hotspot for visitors from around the world. Hiking and mountain biking during the summer, snowmobiling and almost every kind of skiing imaginable in winter, and all-weather attractions in spring and fall make a stay in a Revelstoke vacation rental an option for all seasons. And whether you have in mind a rustic ski lodge in the mountains or a plush downtown condo with room for family and friends, this idyllic Canadian getaway has your back.

Things to do

Soak up the atmosphere in Revelstoke

There are many wonderful ways to experience the Revelstoke way of life. You might start with a trip to the Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks where more than 800 bird species make wiping off your binoculars a must. Squeeze a little culture into your stay by museum hopping from the Railway Museum to the Fire Hall Museum, or simply soak up the atmosphere by pulling up a seat at one of the city’s many pavement cafés. Finish off with a trip to Crazy Creek Hot Pools or Canyon Hot Springs where the soothing waters offer the perfect way to end your day.


Choose your pace in Revelstoke

When packing for your stay in a Revelstoke vacation rental, be sure to pack your energy. From shredding trails through the powder-covered slopes of the Selkirk and Monashee ranges to swinging your way through the cedar rainforest at the SkyTrek Adventure Park, the range of outdoor activities ensure you’ll need every ounce. Of course, a vacation here doesn’t have to be non-stop. If you prefer a slower pace, you might visit the Revelstoke Golf Club where jaw-dropping scenery accompanies every hole, discover handcrafted fairies in the Enchanted Forest, or make memories on a helicopter tour over the Wap Valley.


Revelstoke is an all-season getaway

Revelstoke is a year-round destination, although winter holds obvious appeal. Huge amounts of snow are all but guaranteed, with recorded levels at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort reaching close to 60 feet. Temperatures between December and February often drop below zero but ski suits and almost non-stop outdoor adventure will help keep you warm. In the summer, July and August can bring sunny days where temperatures top 75 degrees. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall both offer mild weather along with a fair amount of rain, needed to sustain the area’s lush inland rainforest.

Natural features

Discover a sumptuous landscape around Revelstoke

You might say that Mother Nature outdid herself here. Revelstoke vacation rentals may be so popular due to their ease of access to the mountains, but there is much more to discover. From winding rivers and raging waterfalls to crisp glaciers and lush rainforest, the landscape is difficult to beat. A wonderful way to experience the surroundings is to seek out the views from the Meadows in the Sky Parkway. Best experienced from early July through to late September, the Parkway ascends for miles through the hemlock and cedar forests of Mount Revelstoke National Park before reaching a tranquil wildflower meadow.
