The Village of Radium Hot Springs is open for business with no restrictions. The travel and accommodation restrictions in effect in some parts of the province due to wildfires are not in effect in Radium nor the Columbia Valley. Businesses are operating as usual. While the greater Columbia Valley area does have wildfires in the region, conditions have improved.
The incredible mountains and forests that are such a draw for people to visit and explore here, mean the potential for wildfires is a reality every year in BC. Residents and travellers alike are encouraged to bookmark and follow factual information sources as they make their travel plans, including Drive BC and the BC Wildfire Service.
Play safe! Check out our Travel Information & Resources.
