Valhalla Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada.

It was established on March 3, 1983 in the mountains above the Western shores of Slocan Lake, in the west Kootenays. The park consists of most of the Valhalla Range of the Selkirk Mountains.

It is 49,893 hectares in size with 30 kilometres (19 mi) of shoreline along Slocan Lake. The park has limited methods of access, and is popular with climbers.[1] Colleen McCrory's Valhalla Society advocated for the creation of the park.[2]
