Fish­ing is a big lure, but the area abounds with na­ture at its best. Whether golf, ski­ing, camp­ing, hik­ing, moun­tain bik­ing, snow­shoe­ing, boat­ing, wa­ter-ski­ing or snow­mo­bil­ing, it’s avail­able in the area. For the more ad­ven­tur­ous, there is heli-ski­ing, cat ski­ing, heli-hik­ing and back-coun­try camp­ing.

The re­mote­ness was also part of the at­trac­tion for an­other cou­ple, Dun­can and Laraine McKen­zie, who im­mi­grated to Canada from the U.K. six years ago to set­tle in Kelowna.

“I’m a keen an­gler, so we wanted some­where qui­eter than Kelowna for a recre­ational spot to spend time — some­where where the lake was not as busy, but the cli­mate was nice,” says Dun­can.

“This part of the Columbia River basin is very re­mote — a nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful ru­ral area — yet it’s close enough to Castle­gar and Trail that it has enough ameni­ties within a short dis­tance. If you have any in­ter­est in any type of wa­ter sport, this is the place, with its dry, warm cli­mate.”
