Kootenay Rockies & Columbia Valley
Play on Lake Windermere
Lake Windermere offers tranquil bays for SUP (stand up paddleboards) or explore the Columbia River and wetlands between Invermere and Radium by canoe or kayak. Perhaps you are after a bit more "splash" and want to jet ski, wakeboard, waterski or tube. It's all here in Invermere and Windermere. For SUP, check out Syndicate Board Shop or Columbia River Outfitters. Power boat rentals are available through Pete's Marina in Invermere or Shadybrook Resort in Windermere. Canoes and kayaks are available through Columbia River Outfitters
Water Sport in Fernie
Challenge your skills while trying to paddle upstream or do as the locals do and just float your way from Hosmer downstream to Fernie Alpine Resort. Looking for something more adventurous? Local operators can provide you with a guided day of kayaking, from mild trips to wild. Kayaks or canoes can be hired in town so pack you bag and get here.
