Cranbrook is located along British Columbia’s southern Trans-Canada highway and is nestled in a beautifully scenic valley surrounded by stunning views of the Rocky Mountains to the east and the Purcell Mountains to the west. Nature lovers will undoubtedly find themselves with a never-ending variety of things to do while visiting Cranbrook, but history buffs and seekers of arts and culture will also find themselves with plenty to discover.

Fort Steel is located on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains and since its gold rush beginnings in 1864, the village has gone from boomtown, to regional centre, to ghost town, to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia. You can enjoy old-time trade demonstrations, steam-train rides, Clydesdale horse-drawn wagon tours, try gold panning, watch live theatre and street performances, and observe the museum displays...or simply enjoy the gorgeous view in a Kootenay Rockies setting!
