A good choice is to fly to Vancouver overnight, and then fly to Castlegar Airport, where we will pick you up (a 1 hour drive). All local travel will be provided. Everything in the village is within walking distance.

New Denver is located on Slocan Lake, nestled in the Valhalla Mountains of South-Central British Columbia, Canada. New Denver has a population of about 700 people, while the town of Silverton (population 200) is located only 5 km away. The two towns make up a hospitable, artistic, and lovely community with all amenities available.
