Of course, if sightseeing by car or motorcycle is the plan for the day, you should know that the West Kootenays are located along the International Selkirk Loop.  This “loop” of highways extends between the West Kootenays and the northern areas of Washington and Idaho, and is considered by many as North America’s #1 International Scenic Byway, because it provides such an exceptional traveling experience.
