Galena ore is in these hills! This was the word of the day back in 1891.
The tour starts with a 30 minute scenic shuttle ride over the pass between Kaslo and New Denver. Here we stop for a peak at a majestic old growth forest, then, on to the ride through Sandon, the Ghost town of the Kootenays , it once had more than 5000 residents, brothels and a booming economy.
We will explore old rail lines, historic mining routes, and will even cross the creek on a hand powered tram!
