Where is the Columbia Valley and what is there to do? Listen…
Our Visitor Centre
Be sure to drop by the Visitor Centre for a warm Valley welcome! The Visitor Centre is also the home of the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce.
We are conveniently located near the Invermere Crossroads on Highway 93 & 95. You’ll find helpful information on the area, and staff who are happy to answer any questions you have.
