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.

Sulphur River - Renowned for its breathtaking beauty and steep canyons the Sulphur is a class II River with a little class III towards the end however, in flood this run turns into continuous class III and IV with many nasty hydraulics. The Sulphur merges with the Smoky River at the Sulphur gates. From this point on it is a relatively flat-water paddle through the scenic Smoky River valley to the take-out. The put in is incredibly beautiful but steep. Budget 2-4 hours on the water. Trip Info thanks to Wapiti Paddling Club. Original author unknown
Muskeg River - An easy flowing section with distinct eddies and straight forward river running as is a great section to take beginners down. There is the odd sweeper and/or strainer on this section to watch for. A quick paddle, easily completed in under 1 hour (but can be made longer with more surfs).
