Welcome to paradise! That’s what Kaslovians think of their home. Kaslo has also been called “a vintage silver dollar in the West Kootenay’s pocket” by British Columbia magazine. Tucked away as it is within the surrounding mountains, and skirted by a rushing river and spectacular lake, the images seem truly apt. Kaslo is a stunningly beautiful small town with a rich history and friendly people. Located in the heart of the mountains of British Columbia, Canada.
Kaslo, a quaint village on the shores of Kootenay Lake in the Selkirk Mountains, overlooks the soaring peaks in the Purcell Mountain Range. The downtown features various boutique eateries, shops, and artisans. Beautiful parks with pristine beaches surround the downtown. Heritage buildings have been lovingly restored, including the S.S. Moyie, the world's oldest intact sternwheeler and the Langham Cultural Centre. You can walk pretty much everywhere in Kaslo, or take a bike for a quicker journey and to head up the hills, along the river, or down the lake.
Kaslo first made its way onto the map in the late 1800s as a gold and silver mining hub. More than a century on, it has retained its historic charm and continues to lure visitors from far and wide for its iconic heritage sites. The S.S. Moyie – the world’s oldest intact sternwheeler – is a major attraction, and the Langham Cultural Centre, which recently won the BC Architecture Foundations “Best Building Award”, has maintained its status as a top cultural attraction since opening its doors in 1896.
Kaslo’s mountainous terrain and impressive scenery makes it an ideal place for hiking and day treks. There are trails for all fitness levels and capabilities, and treks ranging from 1km to 19kms, so something for even the busiest schedule. Nearby Fletcher Falls is definitely worth a visit, having been recognized as one of Canada’s top 10 waterfalls by Canada EH Travel Guide.
