Nipika operates in harmony with nature. We are completely off the grid, and source power from the sun and surrounding forest. All of Nipika’s electricity is generated with renewable, clean solar energy. We salvage dead wood from the woodlot and burn it in a central boiler, which then provides hot water heating to the cabins and other buildings. Hot water is supplied using the same system.
It is Nipika’s goal for guests to enjoy Canada’s Rocky Mountains in non-consumptive ways: enjoy the natural setting using self-propelled activities.
People from all over the world make the trek to visit. If you’re looking to experience the Canadian Rockies and prefer the quiet to crowds, Nipika is for you. Wildlife, dark sky, year round activities, lessons, and tours—we’ve got it all.
Oh, and don’t forget about unmatched beauty!
Nipika is proud to offer pet-friendly accommodations. With over 100km of trails and an open meadow, your furry friends will experience a vacation like no other!
Nipika has three furry companions who can be seen around the property most days. Pets are a part of the Nipika family, so bring everyone along when you visit!
Have a larger animal in mind? We have horse stables on site, and we offer Board n Bale holidays for horse owners looking for a spectacular place for a riding getaway.
When booking your accommodation, please let us know in advance if you’re bringing your best fur friend.
Nipika hosts five races annually: Nipika Crazy Soles trail run, Kootenay Krusher mountain bike race, Nipika Toby Creek Nordic Loppet (featuring skate and classic races), and the Cross River Ripper fat bike race. We offer a variety of distances for each race, so they can challenge everyone in your family.
Nipika also hosts various adventure camps throughout the year, with outdoor adventure at the heart of them.
