Experience a tailored, behind the scenes tour of Kaslo, “the loveliest village in British Columbia,” full of stories, anecdotes, and laughs, hosted by author, artist, musician, and broadcaster, Randy Morse.
As the world grows ever more crowded and stressful, lovely small towns like Kaslo — a village full of Victorian charm and quirky, colourful, creative characters, surrounded by spectacular Nature — are becoming rarer all the time. Visitors delight in the local shops, marvel at the lake and mountains. But few really get to know the place — its nooks and crannies, its eccentric, resilient residents and their favourite haunts. Well, here’s an opportunity to do something about that — to learn, first-hand, what life is really like in Alpine Nirvana!
Warning: after this tour you may not want to leave!
Join your host, Kaslo raconteur Randy Morse, as he grants you an intimate look at what life is really like in Alpine Nirvana — the name he minted for his hometown, on his long-running Kootenay Co-op Radio show, Radio Free Kaslo. If you’ve ever wanted to know what makes a small-town tick, this is your chance! Based on your interests, Randy will tailor a tour for you — it may involve a stroll around town, meeting some interesting locals, sampling some local food and/or beverages, or even a non-strenuous hike along a beach or shady forest trail. Regardless of the activities you choose, he’ll regale you with tales of what it’s like to live in a small, isolated village in the 21st century. By the end of your tour, you’ll have become an honorary Kaslovian — and be proud of it!
