Get Intimate With Nature
Elkford has grown into more than just a mining town: it’s an extraordinary wilderness community, offering the best of modern amenities and mountain culture, in the Kootenay Rockies of British Columbia. It’s located at a higher altitude than any other community in B.C., and it’s one of those rare places where you can still step out your door and into the wilderness.
Reside Alongside Nature
It’s not unusual to spot wildlife strolling down the streets. Wildlife native to the Elk Valley include grizzly and black bears, mountain goats, moose, lynx, wolves, wolverines, badgers, foxes, cougars, coyote, bighorn sheep, elk and deer. In fact, more bighorn sheep inhabit the district of Elkford than any other place in North America.
Explore Elkford's Endless Possibilities
With pristine natural beauty, safe neighbourhoods, untapped outdoor tourism opportunities and the amenities and services of a much larger city, Elkford is the perfect place for growing families to settle and businesses to set up shop.
