Discover the East Shore from Wynndel to Kootenay Bay, cross the glacial-fed Kootenay Lake over to Balfour, on a free ferry, and journey along the shoreline to Ainsworth Hot Springs, Kaslo, North Kootenay Lake and Nelson BC.

Dining, shopping and outdoor activities are part of what makes our region magical. Visit our stores and local artisans online and have a little bit of us, delivered back to you.
