Whether you're planning a quick break or an extended adventure, it's a good idea to know a thing or two about Nelson before setting off.
To help get you oriented, Nelson is located 180 miles (290 kilometers) to the southwest of the well-known city of Calgary.
Forget the big-name attractions — it's the locals that really make a place tick. In this part of British Columbia, you'll find 10,000 of them.
Ridiculous prices will be all yours if you organize your package deal through Travelocity. And don't forget — you can select from upwards of 400 airlines and 665,000 properties.

With a nice range of 16 properties available on Travelocity, you can afford to be a little bit picky in Nelson. But, don't forget — the sooner you secure your room, the sooner you can concentrate on planning those incredible adventures.
There's no more fitting time to spoil yourself than when you're on vacation. Book a room at the Blaylock's Mansion (1679 HWY 3A) and feel like a VIP during your stay. Watching your budget? Don't worry, you won't be left in the cold. The Mountain Hound Inn (621 Baker St) will keep you and your savings account happy.
Slip on your headphones and pick an in-flight movie. Before long, you'll arrive at Castlegar Airport (YCG). It's approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest from the middle of Nelson.
Forget waiting for buses and trains. Search up your car rental options via Travelocity and get the most out of your visit to Nelson.
After being cooped up in a cramped cabin all day, nothing feels as good as climbing behind the wheel. If you're flying into Castlegar Airport, pick up your car from Budget, at Highway 3A R.R. Number 1.
Budget is located in the center of the city at 701 Lakeside Drive. If you have plans to stay nearby, this is the way to go.
Getting out on the green is a fantastic way to stretch your legs and have a real blast. Challenge your skills with a friendly round at Granite Pointe Golf Club. Want some more options? Fancy a bit of fun on the water? Then rub on the sunblock and plunge into some heart-pumping water sports at Nelson Whitewater Rafting Co. And that's not all. Baldface Lodge isn't merely a place to stay — it's an extraordinary experience. This peaceful retreat combines all the amenities and comforts you're looking for with outdoor thrills and adventure.
If you have explored the best of Nelson with time to spare, don't panic! Just 20 miles (32 kilometers) away is Castlegar, and there's so much here that you certainly won't be bored. The Castlegar Golf Club is the perfect place to start discovering the culture of the area. The Kootenay Gallery and the Doukhobor Discovery Centre shouldn't be missed either.
