Nakusp Visitor Center & Chamber

Nakusp and Arrow Lakes offers a variety of outdoor activities in an unspoiled natural setting, surrounded by stunning beauty. Most activities are do-it-yourself, without crowds or line-ups. Even the two 9-hole Golf Courses don't require booking times. There are a few guided activities available as well. And the commercial and natural Hot Springs are open every day.

Staff at the Visitor Centre provide a wealth of information on the Nakusp and Arrow Lakes area, as well as all regions of the province. Local information includes regional, paddling and trail maps, accommodations, events, dining, stores and services. You can also access free wifi, and take advantage of the fax and copy services.

Summer promises terrific golf and fishing, excellent hiking and biking in beautiful alpine areas, and various festivals and events. The Nakusp and Area Community Trails Society also schedules several group hikes.

During the winter, the region is popular with those who like to snowmobile, snowshoe, and any type of skiing including downhill, cross-country, heli-skiing and back country skiing. Winter also provides excellent opportunities for fishing on the open waters of the main lakes, or for ice fishing on the smaller lakes.
