“We did the Loop Super Side Trip from Nelson to Sandon, through New Denver, etc.  We enjoyed the area a great deal, and would like to venture further afield on our next trip.” – A. Taylor, Burton, Washington

Visitors to the village are in awe of the scenic beauty with the rugged mountains and the thirty kilometer long lake. Scuba divers claim that this is one of the clearest and cleanest lakes in Southern BC, with many historical artifacts easily accessible. All manner of water sports include kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, water skiing and swimming. In the winter, down hill, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are the outdoor sports of choice. Within the village two areas have been set aside to commemorate the internment of the Japanese and Japanese-Canadians during WWII. The village has an attractive mix of businesses, where most all services and merchandise can be purchased. Architecture of various designs and ages are worthy of touring.

Follow the Mori Lakeshore trail, part of a shoreline park and lovely municipal campground at New Denver. Take the time to sit and reflect at the Kohan Reflection Garden, next to the hospital.  Spend time exploring the many artisan shops and visit the museum, just south of New Denver. The Nikki Internment Center offers tours in the summer months.
