Things to See and Do During Your Stay

Things to do. Things To See.

Clearwater is a great stop over between Edmonton and Vancouver, but it is more than that! You can spend days, weeks and even months here exploring and never see it all. There are many things to do and see during your visit.

Valley Hideaway is located on the border of some of the least spoiled wilderness in all the world. The beauty is without exaggeration “world class”. There is plenty to see and do here.

Want a quiet day to just kick back and relax? We can accommodate you.

Want a short hike or a multi-day wilderness adventure? Plenty here to choose from.

Looking to ride the white water?  Is your heart set on canoeing on some of the world’s largest “paddle only” lakes? You can do that here.
