The granddaddy circle tour of them all, the International Selkirk Loop is a scenic 450 kilometre trip that travels through the West Kootenays, Idaho, and Washington State. The trip takes you through dozens of colourful towns and spectacular venues for hiking, dining and entertainment. It also encircles the Southern Selkirk Mountains—prime habitat for elk, caribou, black bear and eagles.

Don’t forget your camera to capture breathtaking scenery of crystal clear rivers and snow-capped peaks. Caribou, deer and other wildlife are also easy to come by and eagles can often be spotted gliding in the distance. There are many places to stop off for a picnic or bushwalk and communities such as Nelson and Sandpoint are worth a look in.

Named as one of the top 10 scenic drives in the Northern Rockies, the International Selkirk Loop is well worth the drive. http://www.nelsonkootenaylake.com/things_to_do/recreational_activities/international_selkirk_loop
