History Of The International Selkirk Loop

A Brief History of the Loop

historypageThe Loop was formed in 1999 as a non-profit corporation designed to enhance the local economy through the promotion of tourism along its route in Northern Idaho, Northeastern Washington and the East and West Kootenay region of British Columbia. Since its inception, the Loop has drawn the attention of business owners that now make up its membership, as well as travel guides and various publications throughout the US and Canada — not to mention the thousands of travelers we are fortunate to meet each year!

Our Members are proud to live and do business in such a beautiful environment. Because of our commitment to our communities, our families and our way of life, we, the members of the International Selkirk Loop, invite you to come and sample our hospitality and to experience our magnificent outdoor lifestyle.
