Corn Maze at the Columbia River Wetlands Outpost A scenic hourlong drive along Highway 95 from Fairmont Hot Springs will lead to the seasonal Corn Maze at the Columbia River Wetlands Outpost!

Birdwatching & Wildlife Viewing
Cooler temperatures in the Columbia Valley are a treat to the wildlife, too. Many species return from a summer in higher-altitude mountains and once again find themselves at home in Fairmont Hot Springs and surrounding communities. Keep an eye out for Bighorn Sheep in Radium Hot Springs, watch the Kokanee Salmon spawn, and discover the Columbia Valley Bird Trail (part of the BC Bird Trail).
Radium Hot Springs pools
Warm up in the Radium Hot Springs pools. Famously nestled in a rocky ledge, the Radium Hot Springs pools are popular for a reason. Enjoy the views of mountains and fall foliage while taking a soak in the toasty 39C naturally heated waters.
