Revel in the great outdoors in Revelstoke

It was once an isolated spot in the Kootenay Rockies, but the Canadian Pacific Railway reinvented Revelstoke as a haven for outdoor adventure and a travel hotspot for visitors from around the world. Hiking and mountain biking during the summer, snowmobiling and almost every kind of skiing imaginable in winter, and all-weather attractions in spring and fall make a stay in a Revelstoke vacation rental an option for all seasons. And whether you have in mind a rustic ski lodge in the mountains or a plush downtown condo with room for family and friends, this idyllic Canadian getaway has your back.
