The oldest incorporated village in the Kootenays, Kaslo is situated on the shore of Kootenay Lake in traditional Sinixt and Ktunaxa territories.
Steeped in history, the town houses the last remaining Paddlewheeler—the Moyie—lovingly restored into a local landmark and museum. Currently reliant on Forestry and Tourism, Kaslo continues to have a vibrant art scene with many active local artists and musicians, and the Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival each August on a floating stage in the Kootenay River.
With the wilderness at the doorstep, there is something for everyone in Kaslo.
