Wanderlust and golden dreams first lured travelers to Boundary Country. Plan your exploration of this mineral-rich swath of land that lies in the Thompson-Okanagan Region of BC. It’s here you’ll find tranquil and timelessly Canadian landscapes. Forested mountains sweep into semi-arid ranch lands and lush, fertile valleys.
Where Two Countries Meet
Boundary Country is where the 49th parallel marks the boundary between Canada and the United States. The Kettle River winds it way through Canada and the USA. It flows 282 km (185 mi) from its Monashee Mountain source all the way to the community of Christina Lake near the Kootenay-Rockies region. It’s here where it crosses the border and continues on its way in Ferry and Stevens County.
Being outdoors is what many Boundary experiences are all about. Here are four simple steps for enjoying the great outdoors in British Columbia.
