Valkyr Adventures is owned and operated by Martin and Shelly Glasheen who have made their home in the foothills of the Valkyrs since 1977. Starting from scratch we build a homestead and raised our two children in the mountains. Martin’s vision to create a series of cabins in the mountains was hatched in the late ‘90’s and finally made it through the provincial application process in 2003 when we obtained our Commercial Licence of Occupation to operate our Adventure Tourism business. Each lodge is handcrafted and built from locally sourced timber. Construction began with falling the trees and milling them on our Woodmizer sawmill into posts, beams and dimensional lumber. All the building material had to be trucked up the mountain on logging roads then flown into the building site by helicopter. Needless to say it takes a monumental effort to build lodges in the alpine! We’ve done it not once, not twice but three times! Valkyr Lodge opened in winter 2005, Hilda Hut in 2012 and The Outpost in 2017. It has been a rewarding experience and it has given us great pleasure to host our ski touring and alpine hiking guests up at our mountain retreats.
Take time to enjoy a relaxing round of golf on the shore of the beautiful Arrow Lakes.
Located in the scenic West Kootenays between the Monashee and Selkirk Mountain ranges, our 9 hole course is both fun for the novice and a challenge for the more experienced golfer.
RV-ing? We have a grassed and treed parking area near the clubhouse and if you need full facilities there is private camping nearby.
Open 365 days a year, Halcyon is home to some of the most restorative hot spring waters you will find in North America.
