Getting Here by Car

Not just another roadside attraction

No matter which direction you’re coming from, your drive to the Creston Valley will wow you with amazing scenery, so take your time and enjoy the view.

From Cranbrook, the East Kootenay’s largest city, Creston is just an hour and a quarter’s drive southwest on Highway 3.

From Nelson or Castlegar in the West Kootenay, drive an hour and a half southeast on Highway 3, and experience amazing Kootenay Pass. Or, take advantage of the longest free ferry ride in North America and arrive via Kootenay Lake – with daily crossings year-round, this route is a traveler’s treat at any time.

Creston is just twenty minutes from the nearest US border crossing at Rykerts, on Highway 21.
