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, curl up by the wood-burning fireplace or enjoy sunset from the front porch.
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 mountain biking, hiking, 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, canoe trips on the Kootenay River, and mountain bike clinics in the summer and cross-country ski lessons in the winter.
Join Nipika and Black Feather, along with their professional guides, for themed adventure.
Absolutely LOVE this place! The setting is unparallelled, the trail grooming absolutely TOP-NOTCH, the cabins and amenities very lovely and the service/advice from staff really superb. If you want a model for such facilities, you can't really find better in the Canadian Rockies. Maybe even anywhere!
The staff were super friendly and very accommodating! We came to Nordic ski and the staff were generous with their equipment, the trails were well kept and the staff were knowledgeable on the conditions of the trails and gave excellent advice on where to ski and where not to. Overall the best experience we’ve had! Thanks Nipika!
What’s not to love? Spent a long weekend with kids and grand kids. We cross country skied on an endless selection of trails, and enjoyed some hiking in the snowshoe trails. The kids went fat biking and at the end of each day we enjoyed a fire by the rink, some skating, and a sauna! OMG! And it was all so amazing! Thank you Nipika! Truly a hidden gem!
Have never stayed the night but visited many times. The owners are so nice and welcoming. We use the trails around the property. The MTB trails are lots of fun and follow the Kootenay River. Beautiful views! They also have an awesome frisbee golf course!
