Kaslo, BC is a small waterfront community located on the western shores of Kootenay Lake where the Kaslo River and Kootenay Lake meet. Surrounding the community are the peaks of the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains.
During the Gold Rush days in the Kootenays (1890's) Kaslo was referred to as Kane's Landing. A major commerce and transportation port for gold & silver miners and prospectors.
Today... Kaslo's village streets are lined with Victorian era buildings and floral decorations. The waterfront is decorated with sightseeing benches while boats, sailboats and birds frolic on the lake.
The SS Moyie sternwheeler located on the waterfront in Kaslo is the most popular attraction in the community. The passenger vessel is an early 1900 sternwheeler now operating as a museum. It is open to the public and is recognized as a National Heritage Site and BC Landmark.
Need some relaxing and therapeutic pampering after an adventure. Hot springs are also a popular get-a-way for many families and explorers. South of Kaslo are the Ainsworth Hot Springs and west are the Nakusp Hot Springs.
