Castlegar is located in the heart of the West Kootenay region and is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Whether you love biking, hiking, skiing, fishing, lakes or rivers, Castlegar has world class recreational activities just out your door. Warmer months find residents flocking to hikes and mountain-biking in the Monashee, Selkirk, and Valhalla Mountains, or relaxing on the beaches of Kootenay, Arrow and Slocan Lakes.
