Revelstoke is located on the Trans-Canada Highway, nestled between the Selkirk and Monashee Mountain ranges in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our town is situated at the base of Mount Revelstoke National Park, with Glacier National Park to the east. These two parks collaboratively create some of the most breathtaking scenery British Columbia has to offer. The drive to Revelstoke is arguably the most spectacular in Canada. Travelling from the east, you pass through two National Parks in the Selkirk Mountains, featuring views of white-water rivers, pristine forests, dramatic peaks, and impressive glaciers. Travelling from the west, your journey takes you through the scenic Okanagan/Shuswap regions. Revelstoke is one of Canada’s most up and coming mountain resort communities, appealing to keen outdoor enthusiasts and extreme sport seekers.

Aside from our spectacular nature, Revelstoke offers a variety of sports facilities; including Revelstoke Mountain Resort (boasting the highest vertical in North America), Revelstoke Forum, Centennial Park, Revelstoke Golf Club, Revelstoke Community Centre, and the Mount Macpherson Nordic Centre.
