I think it was John Grace who once said "It's all just training for British Columbia". He was referring to the super challenging creeking and multi day wilderness whitewater trips that are located all over this mountainous province. There is a lifetime worth of easy and intermediate paddling too. Whether it is multi day ocean trips, winter whitewater paddling on Vancouver Island, surfing tidal rapids, creeking in the interior, remote trips up north BC offers it all and then some.

Canoe Trips or Routes


Invermere to Radium
Columbia River - You can take any craft down this scenic river float but since paddling is the name of the game on this one- rafts and play boats are not recommended! Enjoy paddling through some flat wetlands up near Invermere where you will see lots of ducks, fish, birds and possibly even beaver or otters! Then make your way down the river where the Toby Creek comes in to enjoy a bit of paddling help from the flow of these two rivers merging. With no rapids at all on this section and the river only being 20-30m wide it is a trip that anyone can enjoy!
Lake Lillian
Lake Lillian - This is a beautiful lake half way up to Panorama usually with little wind. It is a great practice area, training ground, or just a nice place to explore by paddle!
