furry friends welcome
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.
Nipika operates in harmony with nature and is completely off the grid, sourcing power from the sun and surrounding forest. Our philosophy is to help guests enjoy Canada’s Rockies in non-consumptive ways using self-propelled activities.
Nipika is the perfect place to come together and enjoy family time without the distractions of daily life. With no wifi or TV and endless activities to choose from, you will be sure to reconnect with smiles on your faces and many new memories.
Scenic, well groomed trails. A fantastic place to spend a day. I will definitely be back and will stay a weekend next time.
My kids (ages 8, 6, 2) and I had a fantastic getaway at Nipika. We stayed in the Mitchell cabin which was the perfect size for us and had everything we needed. The kids loved the zip line, slack line, and running in the meadow. The pond was super close for a dip to cool off in and some water fun. We hiked down to the river and spent a lovely afternoon by the water. The deck on the cabin was a great spot to watch the kids playing and I loved that there was no cell service or internet. I can’t wait to go back again and explore more, in both summer and winter. It was a wonderful holiday.
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!
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.
