Invermere On The Lake

Columbia Valley, British Columbia

The little mountain town of Invermere On The Lake is another sure-fire cure for the City Stress Condition that ails you. How could it not be with its breathtaking lake, relaxing atmosphere and a laid-back main street full of boutiques, galleries, art studios, book, grocery and specialty stores.


In addition to unwinding yourself, the town of Invermere on the Lake is also where you can unwind time and experience some of the Columbia Valley’s rich history in the Windermere Valley Museum. Of course, no visit to the Columbia Valley can be considered complete without a stroll along Invermere’s main street through the many art galleries, with a stop at one of many eateries and shopping at the local boutiques.

In the winter, skiers and snowboarders visiting Invermere can rely on the free daily Mountain & Valley Shuttle to and from Panorama Mountain Resort. And the community also hosts one-of-a-kind events, including the BC Pond Hockey Championships and Coffee Fest.

Spring in Invermere sees the opening of some of North America’s most scenic golf courses to visitors. And it brings a series of events throughout the season kicking off on the May Long Weekend, along with our annual Hang Gliding and Paragliding Splash Landing Contest, which has to be seen to be believed.

Summer Saturdays are all about the main street turning into a farmer’s market full of local products and the perfect complement to the blocks full of charming shops of interest.

With its diverse selection of lodging, fine restaurants, cafés, and pubs, you’ll never go hungry or without a good night’s sleep in Invermere on the Lake.
