Welcome to Salmo, BC!

Village-Of-SalmoSalmo is a small friendly community nestled in the beautiful Selkirk mountains of southeastern British Columbia. Known as the “Hub of the Kootenays” Salmo is located an equal 30 minute drive from the communities of Nelson, Castlegar, and Trail. Surrounding mountains, pristine lakes, streams and rivers make Salmo a natural haven for a wide variety of wildlife and offer an ideal setting for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. During the winter months our local ski hill, located just minutes from town, offers night skiing on fully lit runs as well as great daytime skiing on the weekends. We also have an indoor curling rink, outdoor skating rink and many kilometers of cross country ski trails.

In summer, our outdoor pool, many hiking trails and local parks provide endless opportunities to enjoy a healthy living lifestyle. On top of all that, some say we have the best drinking water in the world! All of this makes Salmo truly one of the best travel destinations as well as a great place to live. Please explore our website and discover all that our area has to offer. We hope to see you soon!
