Kootenay National Park

Kootenay National Park is a place of unique contrasts, from icy mountain rivers to steamy hot springs.

Highlights include the Continental Divide; the spine of western North America, the turquoise, glacial waters and startling canyon walls of the Marble Canyon, the Kootenay Valley Viewpoint and Radium Hot Springs.
