About the Balfour Area


Balfour is a fabulous area to live or visit. This tiny, vibrant community is located only 25 minutes north of Nelson, BC along the Hwy 3A, nestled along the shores of Kootenay Lake at the junction of the West Arm.

Home to the longest FREE running ferry in the world, a 40 minute ride across Kootenay Lake boasts the most spectacular mountain meets water scenery found anywhere.  A golfer’s paradise, Balfour Golf Course (18 holes) is Kootenay’s best-kept golfing secret – a glorious golfing challenge through the Selkirk mountains.

Fishing, boating, tennis courts, hiking, camping, fitness center, playground, playing fields, community hall – Balfour has something for everyone.

Accommodations in Balfour are available for every budget range from private home rentals on the waterfront, hotels, motels, B&B’s or area campgrounds.  Balfour’s full-service general store has anything you may need.  Balfour has a variety of fine and casual dining or maybe you’ll just feel like a cold drink on a hot, sunny deck overlooking the lake 0 it’s all here in beautiful Balfour.
