Ziplining is an experience unlike any other. But they’re not all created equal. We’re proud that our sustainable approach to the beautiful Fairmont Hot Springs area makes us one of the best ziplines. In fact, we won Trip Advisor’s 2021 “Travellers’ Choice” Award and we’re the No-1 rated activity in the area.

After five years in Fairmont, we’re pretty thrilled to be that popular! And in that time, we’ve discovered some gems of the BC Columbia Valley that we want to share with you - and the whole family - for the next time you come by for a zipline adventure.

Fairmont Funtasia

Just a three-minute drive away from our ziplines is a unique minigolf course integrated right into the forest – that’s sustainable ecotourism we love! 

Fairmont Funtasia doesn’t stop at minigolf though; bumper cars, gardens, and animals ensure there’s something for everyone.

Hoodoo Trails

Need a gorgeous backdrop for that vacation picture to send to your relatives? The Hoodoo Trails is a perfect spot to find those Instagram worthy shots without too much hassle.

This short hike is a great choice to get the kids moving and see some iconic Columbia Valley sand formations. The trail has some steeper sections that may be challenging for beginners, but the informative panels along the way make for great rest stops.

Columbia River Paddle

Take a quick twenty-minute drive north for something to do in Invermere, where Columbia River Paddle offers a relaxed approach to water sightseeing. 

Whether it’s canoeing, kayaking, or stand-up paddleboarding, you’re sure to find a fun way to see another side of our beautiful valley.
