Welcome to Nakusp!

Located in the centre of three different mountain chains (the Selkirk Mountains, the Valhalla Mountains and the Monashee Mountains) and on the east shore of the Arrow Lakes, this West Kootenays town offers spectacular views that are sure to impress any nature lover. Originally established as a mining town in the early 1900s, its history is on display at the Nakusp Museum. The town is now host to a plethora of outdoor activities, such as golfing, hiking, fishing, skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking. Many of these activities can be undertaken at nearby Burton Historical Park and McDonald Creek Provincial Park. The city's claim to fame is its two natural hot springs, Halcyon Hot Springs and Nakusp Hot Springs. Visitors to these thermal outdoor pools can soak in the warm water while gazing at the spectacular scenery around them, a combination of alpine peaks, crystal blue lakes and rivers, and a forested region home to an abundance of wildlife.
