Please note that businesses and attractions are slowly reopening, refer to our What’s Open page before planning your trip.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort
Revelstoke Mountain Resort is going to be at the centre of your itinerary. Their Play All Day Pass will give you access their summer highlights, including the Pipe Mountain Coaster.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort is also home to the Aerial Adventure Park, where you can swing, zip, climb, jump and free fall your way through our four-storey ropes course. During the summer months, Peak Axe Throwing has their targets set up at the mountain base, and you can try your hand at axe throwing. There’s also a frisbee golf course.
Book a guided mountain bike ride or lesson with Wandering Wheels. Revelstoke’s mountain bike trails are world class, and a family trip is a great chance to get out and explore on two wheels. Your guide will tailor the excursion to your family’s ability and goals, so you’re sure to make the best of your mountain bike experience.
For younger children, the Miller Time adaptive loop and skills lines are great, even on run bikes. Mount Revelstoke National Park is home to the Beaver Lodge Bike Park (pictured), located in the Nels Nelsen area. This interpretive play park has fun features for kids to try their skills on.
In the afternoon, head to our local Aquatic Centre. It’s got a climbing wall, a water slide, a splash area, and a lazy river – enough to keep any kid happy! Many accommodations have pool passes included, so check with your accommodations to see about getting pool admission.
SkyTrek and The Enchanted Forest
The twin attractions of Enchanted Forest and Sky Trek are just outside Revelstoke on Highway One. The Enchanted Forest is a magical place where visitors can see, touch and step into the homes of fairytale heroes, villains and creatures that hold so many memories for all of us. At Sky Trek, trek in the trees, zip, climb, jump, swing, free-fall, challenge yourself and test your nerve at up to 15 meters (50 feet) off the ground. Kids 2 and up can participate.
Museums and Williamson Lake
Revelstoke has three great museums to check out, and they all have something for the kids. The Revelstoke Railway Museum and the BC Interior Forestry Museum are sure to be a highlight for kids who are interested in machines or how things work.
Near Revelstoke, Williamson Lake has warm water, a raft to swim to, and a beach to picnic on. Right next to the lake there’s also a mini golf course! This is a great spot to park up and relax, build a sand castle, and go for a swim.
If your family has energy to spare, head out to Sutherland Falls at Blanket Creek Provincial Park. You can also hit Begbie Falls on your way. Both are short hikes to magnificent waterfalls.
Hiking and Rafting
In the morning, we recommend checking out some of Revelstoke’s hikes. In Mount Revelstoke National Park, the Nels Nelsen ski jump is a great short walk that takes you to historic ski jump and interactive exhibit. Inspiration Woods is a great hike to get out and about in Revelstoke’s rainforest. You can also drive to the top of Mount Revelstoke via the 26 km Meadows in the Sky Parkway, take in the views, and do some short hikes when you reach the top.
Kids 4+ can participate in Wild Blue Yonder’s Columbia River Float, a relaxed two hour river trip down the Columbia with spectacular views of the Selkirk Mountains and a short 5-minute walk to Moses Creek Falls.
In alignment with provincial guidelines, we encourage you to book activities and accommodation ahead of your arrival. When in Revelstoke, please follow our REVY RULES to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
