Valemont, British Columbia

Valemount is charming, from the excessive number of its Welcome to Valemount signs which make you feel very welcomed indeed, to its many little nooks which border on Swift Creek where you can enjoy warm grass, sun and wildlife. The Visitor Centre is lovely, offering a quiet and pleasant place to browse for souvenirs and maps, chat with guides, and find out about local events, such as nature talks or perhaps where the local RV parts vendor is.

When the salmon run, in mid- to late-August, the place comes alive and many people pass through or stay for a time, trying to catch glimpses of the churning red bodies as they come to the end of their fascinating life cycle.

For a small place, Valemount has a lot of RV and tent campgrounds. Among these are IRVin's, Wilderness Creek Campground, Yellowhead Campground and Valemount Pines Golf Club, RV Park and Campground, to name some of those available. It is very pleasing from a tourist perspective too, with a selection of restaurants, stores and services clustered along the main strip. Promise yourself that you'll try the Korean and Japanese restaurant; it is small but the food is really special and beautifully presented.

There is a pub called the Loose Moose which seems to be open from late afternoon into the night and caters to a post-workday or post-adventure kind of crowd. Other restaurants in the area are more family-oriented.

Adventure tours start from here and go into the wilds of the surrounding mountains. The logging trails serve as an exciting ATV network. Equipment can be rented and you can be a rookie or an experienced ATV rider. You could board a Hummer or a jeep and experience the wild and varied scenery that way. And there are two helicopter services in the village. Information is available at the Visitor Centre.

All in all, Valemount is a pleasure to pass through but an even better place to stay for a bit. As the first sizeable centre a short distance from the Alberta-BC border, it is a good choice for a one-night stop or a destination
