Salmo is a village in the West Kootenay region of southeastern British Columbia. It is located in the Salmo River Valley, surrounded by the Selkirk Mountain range.
Situated at the junction of the Crowsnest Highway and Highway 6, Salmo is about a 30 minute drive from the communities of Castlegar, Nelson, and Trail. Salmo is the western terminus of the Salmo-Creston highway constructed in the late 1950s (now Highway 3) as a shortcut to avoid the long route north to Nelson and crossing Kootenay Lake by ferry between Balfour and Kootenay Bay.
Salmo is an ideal location for people who want acreage and for those that have livestock and/or horses.
