Before leaving Nelson to travel further east, we suggest a visit of Kokanee Creek Provincial Park before you drive to Fairmont Hot Springs.

We recommend arriving early at Fairmont Hot Springs to be able to enjoy a nice soak in the hot springs (included when staying at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort).
