CRAFTED EXPERIENCES FOR CURIOUS TRAVELLERS
Whaddya mean we need to take a ferry? There’s no Starbucks, Tim Horton’s or McDonald’s? All you serve is craft beer? If the answers to those questions leave you thinking “hell yeah!”, welcome to Kootenay Cycling Adventures. We specialize in providing unique road biking tours from our home base in Nelson, British Columbia. Our mission is to help you live the dream through self-propelled and supported travel. Providing great experiences is in our DNA.
There’s a reason why the locals call it “Kootenay Time” out here. Located a little to the west of the famed Canadian Rockies, Nelson is a quirky and lively mountain town nestled on the shores of fjord-like Kootenay Lake. It’s the ideal starting point to explore the spectacular yet little known region known as the Kootenays.
We like to think it’s a place for free spirits and well-rounded squares. It’s a place where sustainability is a way of life and where our remoteness breeds a distinctive culture. It’s where locally grown foods, craft beers, eclectic shops and active lifestyles meet tranquil winding roads, natural splendour and spiritual awakening. We could say it’s “authentic”, “genuine” and all those other fancy buzz words. But really, it’s just all kinds of awesome. Come experience it for yourself and set your clock to Kootenay Time. Full warning: you might see the world a little differently after a trip to the Kootenays.
