Fall is a magical time around Kootenay Lake. Brilliant autumn colours decorate the mountain heritage towns of Nelson and Kaslo from mid-September through early November. Mild temperatures slowly give way to cooler hikes and bike rides, while alpine peaks tempt eager skiers and attract photographers capturing the spectacular sights.

The cool crisp air is ideal for strolls on historic main streets. Warm up with a beverage at a funky brewery or charming cafe and check out the diverse selection of museums and galleries. Venerable shops and restaurants, still catering to outdoor diners in the Fall, keep the streets a buzz morning to night.
