Valemount .................................................................

Valemount, British Columbia is located approximately 20 minutes by car from Mount Robson Lodge. This small mountain community offers a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of city life while providing world class scenery, recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities. This friendly mountain village, home to approximately 1000 people, is set amongst three different mountain ranges, the Cariboo, Monashee and Rocky Mountains, all of which are visible from Valemount. To the west of the town site is the stunning Premier Mountain Range, part of the Cariboo Mountains, where thirteen peaks have been named for Canada's prominent politicians including Mount Pierre Elliot Trudeau one of Canada's more recent and colourful prime ministers.

Valemount's main attraction is the natural beauty and outdoor recreation. The local mountains offer several hiking and biking opportunities all within a close distance to the town, many offering spectacular views of the surrounding mountains or unique ecosystems. Just outside Valemount, travellers can visit a semi-desert environment at Jackman Flats Provincial Park a unique sand-dune environment found no-where else in British Columbia that houses some plants which are native to Arizona. Within a 20 minute drive from this semi-desert you can be standing in an interior rainforest at Mount Robson Provincial Park or a sub-alpine forest on one of the surrounding peaks.

Adventure seekers to the Valemount area will not be disappointed. For those who like to fish, nearby mountain streams and lakes, as well as the massive Kinbasket Lake will be sure to offer enough variety to keep any angler busy. For canoeing, rafting, or kayaking enthusiasts, Valemount is in close proximity to the Thompson and Fraser Rivers, as well as several creeks lakes and wetlands. Just 5 minutes south of Valemount, the R.W. Starratt Wildlife Sanctuary, which can be explored by hiking trail or canoe, has been designated as one Canada's top bird-watching destinations. This 6000 acre wetland is home to over 140 different species of birds and is directly on a major migration route. In August the world's second longest salmon migration passes through George Hicks Regional Park by way of Swift Creek, a tributary of the Fraser River. Two nine-hole golf courses offer a beautiful Rocky Mountain golf experience within minutes of Valemount and during the winter months Valemount is considered to be a top Canadian Snowmobile Destination.

Valemount offers several restaurants and amenities for travellers with Canadian small town atmosphere. The Valemount and Area Museum offers displays on the first settlers in the area and the rich railway history of the town. At the Valemount Visitor Centre you can view displays on the Premier Mountain Range and the Spawning Salmon, or take in daily nature talks during July and August.
