New Denver

Imagine a storybook image of a small lakeside mountain town. That would describe New Denver, situated on the east shore of Slocan Lake at the junction of Hwy 6 running from the south end of the Slocan Valley to Nakusp and beyond; and Hwy 31A, a winding and scenic drive to/from Kaslo. Dramatic lake and mountain views greet you from just about anywhere including the spectacular New Denver Icefield in Valhalla Provincial Park across Slocan Lake.

Visit the Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre for a history of Japanese Canadians who were interned throughout the Kootenays during and even after the Second world war.
