Mine Tours

Mine Tours

Teck's Fording River and Greenhills Operations offer summer tours of coal mining operations in July August. All tours depart  from the Elkford Visitor Centre (750 Fording Drive) at 10:30 am, with the exception of the tour scheduled for July 2, 2016.

Tours are free of charge, and we recommend that guests call in advance to reserve a spot as each tour can only accomodate up to 40 people and often fill up.

Also, we ask that guests arrive 15 minutes early to sign in and prepare for the tour. The time duration of the round trip depends upon site visited, but guests should plan for at least two hours round-trip.
