If your interests include art and the animal kingdom, the 240 kilometre (137 mile) trip around Kootenay Lake’s southern end and the Salmo-Creston Pass is a must do. On your way to the Kootenay Ferry stop in at Crawford Bay explore the incredible artisans community which produces artworks from clay, fabric, ironwork and even brooms.

The twisting highway route leads through Creston and the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area; a 17,000-acre reserve that’s home to 370 species. The trip up and over the Salmo Creston Pass takes you through the high country home of the mountain caribou, big horn sheep, black bear and grizzly.

Great mix of high mountain pass and valley bottom roads. Lots of twisties but many opportunities for enjoying the scenery.
