NEW* COVID-19 Policy and Practices:  During these uncertain times we at Footsteps and supporting backcountry lodges are doing our best to keep all staff and guests safe!  We have increased our sanitation methods and are only welcoming guests from BC at this time.  The numbers of guests in the lodge are reduced and lodge stays are mostly sticking to friend and family groups. We are following protocols advised from BLBCA to make lodge stays safer for everyone. This includes social distancing in the lodge, mandatory hand washing and personal protective gear.  We are dedicated to safe back country adventures. Please email Leah if you have more specific questions.

Footsteps goal is offer unique meaningful experiences in the wilds of the Kootenay.

Tours will strive to have low impact on the ecosystems we are exploring. The business will use local resources and promote awareness of the ecological sensitivity of our wild spaces and the connections we have with the land.
