This is a beautiful, secluded place that is reached either by a pedestrian suspension bridge, or a causeway. At the centre of the island is the wonderful Russian-style house built by Mr Zuckerberg which the guide kindly unlocked and allowed us to see inside. We...More

A gorgeous (almost) island with water on 3 sides. Amazing suspension bridge. Not too long or too high to be scary but still get the feel of the floating in the air. Great history.

Exposition is rather small but well worth of the visit. Volunteer working there (proud member of Dukhobor community) was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Location of the island at the meeting place of Columbia and Kootenay River has a lot of historical value as well.
