Kaslo - Picture Perfect

Steeped in history and awash in natural beauty, Kaslo welcomes visitors with spectacular lake and mountain vistas, four season recreational opportunities, natural hot springs and exceptional shopping and dining.

Founded in 1893, Kaslo enjoys a rich and colourful history. Originally part of a timber claim, Kaslo rapidly became a thriving silver ore mining and shipping boomtown. City Hall, completed in 1898 and a National Historic Site, remains one of only two wooden municipal buildings still used as a seat of government in Canada. 1898 was also the year the sternwheeler S.S. Moyie was launched, providing service along Kootenay Lake. This beautifully restored vessel, the oldest intact passenger sternwheeler and also a National Historic Site, graces the downtown shoreline and welcomes visitors to come aboard.

With a population of approximately 1000, Kaslo is a haven for small business entrepreneurs and artisans whose works are displayed in shops and galleries throughout the village. The storefronts that line Front Street date back to the early 1900s and the unique design cues of that period have been painstakingly preserved or restored by the owners.

Kaslo is also home to a number of events and festivals throughout the year including the famous Kaslo Jazz Etc. Summer Music Festival, named by USA Today as one of the “10 great places to get in tune, be outdoors!”

Kaslo´s most attractive feature will always be the pristine beauty of its natural surroundings. A myriad of recreational opportunities sustain locals and draw visitors to the Kaslo area year round. With the amenities of a much larger center, Kaslo is the ideal place to visit, work, raise a family or retire. Learn more about us by exploring this website and then...
