Where you’ll be

Ymir, British Columbia, Canada

We live in the small community of Ymir and enjoy being close to nature. The simple life inspires a peaceful consciousness, and an opportunity to fully appreciate the natural wonders that abound in this area. The fundamentals of community, sustainability and diversity remain intact in Ymir, and endow our town with a unique and vibrant spirit that has attracted many first generation residents from all walks of life to plant roots. Our small town provides all amenities at walking or biking distance. The Bakery Ymir is open Sunday through Wednesday. Always fresh cinnamon buns and fresh baked bread. Pizza by the slice is delicious and one can always order whole pizza's with a little notice. Sundays are my favorite because of the fresh chocolate filled croissants. Our general store/cafe is a hub that provides you with many groceries, odds and ends, and the best coffee in the area. There is always freshly baked goods, a fully stocked deli and a menu with a variety of choices for breakfast or lunch. The Ymir hotel, with its extensive and famed art collection ie(Papanugini), is an unforgettable local watering hole with dinner service and have a open jam on Friday nights. The proprietor will happily give you a tour of the old building and its art. The Ymir community hall and the Old Ymir School House often host live music and dances.
