Summer Outdoor Adventure


ATV and Quadding Icon ATVing/Quading in Arrow Lakes is a unique experience.  Not only are there 1,000's of kilometers of old logging and mining roads.  There are 1,000's of square kilometers of crown land for you to enjoy.  This is also one of the few places in the world where you can ride your ATV on the beach.  Many people use the extensive waterfront as the go to transportation route during the early spring and late fall. 


It is very common to see long distance road riders as you drive South of Revelstoke towards the Shelter Bay ferry terminal. Bikers love the lack of traffic, gentle turns and hills on this part of Highway 23 and look forward to the scenic ferry ride to Galena Bay. From there more of the same as they go South on Highway 6 to Fauquier or turn East at Nakusp, on Highway 23. The free ride, downhill biking, and mountain biking community in the Arrow Lakes area is also large and very active with some of the best trails anywhere in the world.  


The treed, mountainous regions of Arrow Lakes is one of the most beautiful you will ever encounter, where better then to enjoy a great game of golf. Grab your clubs and play a game of golf where it is intended to be played. There are many options for golfing close by:


Close by in Trout Lake is a dramatic sawtooth ridge rising high above Trout Lake called the Silver Cup Ridge Hiking Trail.  The 25 kilometer trail along the ridge incorporates old mine roadway, horse trail and hiking trail as it ascends from the Trout Lake valley to follow the ridge through meadows and alpine basins for the length of the lake. Roads have made Silvercup Ridge accessible for many recreational pursuits: snowmobilers, hunters, horse riders and hikers all share the ridge.

Describe your perfect motorcycle ride and it will probably sound a lot like this ride from Revelstoke, BC.  Go South on Highway 23, across the ferry to Nakusp, Highway 6 to Slocan and then onto Nelson.  Hang out at Nelson, BC for a couple of hours and understand why Steve Martin enjoyed Nelson so much.  Then it is North to Kaslo on 6 and then off to New Denver via Highway 31A West.  Arrive at New Denver back to Nakusp and then South on Highway 6 to Fauquier, across the lake on the ferry to Needles.  From there take Highway 6 West until you end up at Vernon.  From Vernon, North on Highway 97A to Sicamous and turn East on Highway 1 back to Revelstoke.  The best ride in your life thru some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet.  Gentle turns and no traffic! 

 Rock Climbing

The best part about climbing in British Columbia is not just the many routes and climbing pitches, it’s the huge variety of scenery and landscape the many different routes have to offer. Climbing is much more than the actual movement and how hard you can go; it is also about being out there in a great landscape with the most perfect scenery and challenging yourself. 

 Wildlife Viewing

The Galena Bay area features vigorous tree, shrub and wildflower growth and a healthy wildlife population thrives in the area.  A typical spring day is alive with bird calls: Loons, Canada Geese, Bald Eagle, Osprey, Ravens, Woodpeckers and countless small songbirds.
