Summer in Revelstoke does not disappoint…

Revelstoke might be best known for its winter but ask any local and they’ll tell you that the summers here are every bit as amazing…if not better! Summer in British Columbia’s rocky mountains is perfect for people who like the big open spaces, small town vibes, and stunning mountain vistas.

Still need persuading? Here are 5 photos to get you stoked on your summer road trip to Revelstoke.

Just a short drive off the highway onto forest roads yields views like this. Aim for sunset or sunrise for extra stunning views.

Remember, Revelstoke has an active logging industry. Make sure you have radio equipment and know how to use it where necessary.

The alpine hikes are to die for. No matter how long the hike, the views are more than enough to ease tired legs and sore feet.

There’s nothing like watching the sun slowly creep behind the mountains on a balmy summer night. Restaurants and bars throughout downtown offer comfortable patio seating so you can make the most of those long summer days.

Just north of town along Hwy 23 N you’ll discover Lake Revelstoke. This 220km expanse of clear, blue water offers breathtaking scenery and sandy beaches to cool off after big adventures.

  • Luv to re-visit Revelstoke since our last trip in 1998, fall season..
    I would like to know if there are week end markets during spring, summer or fall. I love the atmosphere of the markets.
    Thanks and regards.

      Hi Sen! The outdoor Saturday market typically starts at the end of April and goes until the end of October, and it has grown to 2 city blocks! The rest of the year (November-March) there is an indoor market every second Thursday at the community centre. You should definitely make the trip back, we have evolved as a community since 1998!
