Don’t let the “Winter blues” get you down. British Columbia is a beautiful province with a plethora of amazing spots to explore all seasons of the year. Check out Marble Canyon, at the north end of Kootenay National Park.

It’s situated near the Vermilion River and surrounds Tokumm Creek. What makes Marble Canyon so magical is its dramatic and awe-inspiring colours that have slowly worn away over the centuries from the rushing waters of Tokumn Creek. It’s the perfect place to go exploring whether it’s warm or cold.

But the breathtaking spot would make for the most magical Winter getaway. Something about the emerald-coloured water set amongst the pristine snow. See for yourself:






Go on a magical snowshoe trek to discover an incredible 40-metre-deep gorge, the beautiful grey limestone and glacial meltwater.

While it’s just under a nine-hour drive from the city, the views make it well worth it. Because of its proximity to Banff, why not go the extra mile and explore all the mountain town has to offer.

Discover Banff even offers guided snowshoe tours of Marble Canyon where they take you on an easy snowshoe trail to admire all of its beauty. Afterwards, you will make your own frozen dessert by pouring hot maple taffy into the snow.
