Kootenay National Park

Kootenay National Park is a place of unique contrasts, from icy mountain rivers to steamy hot springs. Explore deep canyons and tumbling waterfalls just a short stroll from the road or traverse the park’s backcountry trails. 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.
