Hiking
Hiker’s paradise is probably the best way to describe Revelstoke. It literally has a route for everyone. Whether you’re looking to get up close to a glacier, gain some elevation or a relaxed woodland walk, Revelstoke probably has a hike for that.

Here is a great resource to help you plan your day’s hiking

The Pipe Mountain Coaster
Maybe hiking or mountain biking isn’t your thing. Not to fret, you can still experience the great outdoors without breaking a sweat.
The Pipe Mountain Coaster is a 1.4km self-controlled downhill rollercoaster. The adventure begins right out of the starting gate; after buckling into the cart, you push forward to release the brakes. Ahead of you lies a steep drop that dives right into an ominous tunnel.

From there, you descend 279 vertical metres, over 1.4 kilometres of high-speed rail, twisting and turning through the forest all the way to the finish line in the Resort Village. Suitable for the whole family. Think of it as a roller coast where you control the speed.
