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. Summer in BC’s interior mountains is a wonderland for people who like the outdoors, people who like quaint mountain towns, people who enjoy good small town vibes, and people who like stunning mountain vistas. Basically, everyone.

Still need persuading? Here are 5 photos that prove that summer in the mountains is the best.

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

    I would like to know if there are week end markets during spring, summer or fall. I love the atmosphere of the markets.

      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!
