Albeit not popular, Nelson is a great destination for a vacation in Canada. If you ask me, this is a city that you need to discover at a slower pace. There are so many things to experience in this city. If you are planning to visit Nelson anytime soon, here is my take on the best things to do.
- Go fishing
Want to enjoy some outdoor activity? Go fishing and catch some salmon and trout. The local lakes offer fishing activities. Rent a boat and your gear. Since I am not that adept at fishing, I took some time practicing with the local fishing guide.
- Visit a spa
Spend some relaxing time at a spa. It might be a good way to unwind the stress of your busy life. There is a good many numbers of spas available in this city. Pampering myself at a local spa was surely a good decision.
- Kayak tours
Being so close to Kootenay, I could not miss out on the opportunity to Kayak. Overnight and daytime paddles will connect you to waterfalls, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, and wildlife. Since I didn’t get my own kayak, I had to avail the tours that are available. So, do not worry, in case you do not have one.
- Wildlife tour
I went on a hiking tour which brought to a popular wildlife viewing area. If you are lucky enough, you will get to grizzly and black bears. You will be able to visit these area whole rafting, kayaking or boating.
- River rafting
Want to have a rafting experience? There is the Slocan River to do that. You can either avail the overnight adventure or go off for the day. If you want to avail a guided tour, that is available, too.
