Radium Hot Springs
Radium Hot Springs is located at the junction of three highways: Hwy 95 103 km (64 miles) north to Golden or Hwy 93 through Kootenay National Park and eventually 134 km (84 miles) to Banff, or you can travel 146 km (91 miles) south to Cranbrook on Hwy 95/93.

Resort Community
Radium Hot Springs is a resort community complete with hot springs, outdoor recreation and incredible scenery along the Columbia River. But the real truth is, if you're a golfer, this has to be some of the best golfing together with the best scenery that is offered anywhere in this world.

Golfing at Radium Resort
The golfing - you have to see it to believe it, scenery, availability and value, it's all here. Radium has two courses from which to choose at Radium Resort: The Springs and The Resort. You'll find them both very challenging with a nice layout.

Other Golf Courses close by
Then if you want to travel north, less than an hour away Golden has the Golden Golf Club rated in the top one hundred in Canada. Then, south from Radium, there are the courses around Invermere and Fairmont area that you'll find all very entertaining.

Excellent Outdoor Recreation
The outdoor recreation around Radium is excellent. The hiking and exploring throughout the national parks is just one part. For cycling the road through the Columbia Valley can test your endurance while going through the Rockies will have your heart pounding.

Hot Springs
For spa lovers and people who enjoy soothing warm water, they will love the hot springs at Radium. Located here since the early 1900's, the springs have been a historical favourite for the people of Calgary, Alberta.

If you happen to be visiting Calgary take the short drive, two hours or so, and really discover the many hot springs that Radium and the Columbia Valley have to offer.

Wildlife Viewing
If you enjoy wildlife viewing then a trip to Columbia River Wetlands is in order. Perhaps the largest wetland in North America, this area will provide you with a chance to view a large amount of wildlife.

National Parks
Radium is also very close to three national parks: Kootenay National Park, Yoho National Park, and Banff National Park. Besides the National Parks both Alberta and British Columbia share some provincial parks in the Rocky Mountains.

Provincial Parks
Here you'll find Mount Assiniboine, Peter Lougheed, Height of the Rockies Park and Elk Lakes Park that are all worth visiting for the wildlife viewing, trails and mountain scenery. There is also Bugaboo Park located just north-east with access through various forestry roads at Spillimacheen.

Travelling through the Columbia Valley
Located in the Rocky Mountain Trench, the Columbia Valley will be quite a fuel saver travelling either north to Golden on Hwy 95 or south to Cranbrook on Hwy 95/93. The highway has barely any noticeable difference in elevation and is better for your vehicle in fuel economy. The views of the Rockies along the Columbia Valley are always inspiring and this stretch of road is truth to that wisdom.

Bear Country
Just remember if you are enjoying the provincial parks and the countryside around British Columbia, please remember this is Bear Country. Try to avoid the rivers during heavy salmon spawning times unless you feel comfortable with bears around and take the usual precautions. There is also the possibilities of encounters with wolves or cougars so please play it safe.
