The International Selkirk Loop (ISL), is well known by tourists and locals alike for its 280 miles of stunning scenery that winds through the Selkirks of Washington, Idaho and British Columbia. Established in 1999, the Loop was designated as a non-profit to designed to enhance the local economy through the promotion of tourism along its route.
Today, the Loop can accomplish this goal better than ever.
A newly designed tourism website makes it easy to plan a visit to North America’s only International Scenic Byway, complete with things to do, community information, border crossing tips, and ferry schedules.
“This area is fortunate to have such a wide variety of outdoor activities, friendly communities and amazing natural resources,” said Stephanie Sims, Executive Director. “Our main goal with the new website was to simplify it for the user and help them discover everything they are looking for.”
The website also has extensive interactive maps, lodging and dining information, a beautiful photo gallery and links to businesses that will help make their stay enjoyable.
“The app is designed similar to our travel guide in that the traveler can navigate around the loop to each of the communities. We then highlight some of the things to see and do in that specific area and included some stunning imagery to go with it,” said Stephanie. “The best part of the mobile app is that it is all-inclusive. You do not need cell service or wifi to use it.”
