Located on a remote shoreline of Kootenay Lake’s pure, open waters; poised under endless dark night skies framed by the majestically rugged Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges, the Tipi Camp is more than just a refuge from the increasing demands of our modern world – it is a place where Earth’s natural rhythms gently reawaken one’s sense of connection between self and the cosmos.
