If you’re looking for a peaceful retreat with incredible wilderness at your doorstep, welcome to Nipika! Enjoy homelike comforts and amenities in our luxurious, self-contained log cabins, surrounded by majestic mountain views. After a day of adventure, sit on the porch or curl up by the fireplace.
Nipika is surrounded by a magnificent trail network set along the Kootenay and Cross River valleys with stunning mountain, river, and forest views. The trails are built and maintained for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running in the summer and cross country skiing, fat biking, and snowshoeing in the winter.
Nipika is a year-round adventure destination, and we love helping guests get out there. Our guided activities include alpine day hikes and canoe trips on the Kootenay River in the summer and cross-country ski lessons in the winter.
Such a lovely location--away from everything. The log cabin was rustic looking, but was super cozy inside--very well equipped kitchen, wood stove with firewood right outside, nice sheets and comfy bed, nice toiletries in the bathroom. The setting is absolutely lovely, surrounded by mountains and close to the river. So peaceful and relaxing!
Incredible getaway in nature. 2 nights was not nearly enough to experience all the mountain biking, hiking, paddling down the Kootenay River, starry nights by the firepit... Hosts were unbelievable too!
Scenic, well groomed trails. A fantastic place to spend a day. I will definitely be back and will stay a weekend next time.
Amazing ski trails that are well groomed and varied terrain. Super friendly folks. Great lessons available from knowledgeable instructors. Can’t say enough about this gem.
