Diverse is how we would best describe the paddling in this mountain/prairie province. In the west of the province runs are characterized by beautiful backdrops, continuous rivers and cold water. Everything from mellow multi day floats in national parks to hairy class V creeking is available in the west. As you move further east the gradient drops but there are still plentiful paddling options for those looking to float mellow rivers in really unique surroundings. It is a huge province so don't neglect to look north and south too. A very worthwhile paddling destination in it's own right.

Fort McKay

Conterra Road to Athabasca River
Muskeg River - Great slow river to paddle! Class 1 moving water with a couple class 2 sections including a nice Class 2+ play wave about half way down. Lots of wood on this river so be well aware of those hazards. There are some steep walls too, so if one ever were to swim, must be comfortable swimming in moving water.
