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


Bromley Rock
Similkameen River - A fun paddle, lots of waves, and fun. The Grade could be considered 2+ but when the river is high it deserves the Grade 3 rating. Wood is a concern during higher water.
Below Similkameen Falls
Similkameen River - A 4 km run consisting mainly of boulder gardens and small drops. There is a short canyon with a grade 4 drop, this can be avoided by carrying boats over the rocks to the right of the drop (this might not be possible at high water).
Granite Creek to Princeton
Tulameen River - A solid grade 2 run with plenty of eddies and boulders. The run follows the Kettle Valley Railway. Although mainly grade 2 there is a section of grade 3 followed by a grade 4 drop. This can be portaged along the railway. After the falls the river becomes a float.
Canyon Run
Tulameen River - The technical part of this run begins shortly after the put in. The first rapid, visable from the put in, is a II+ with rocks, large waves and holes. 200 yards later, the Grade II+ Canyon begins at a 90 degree left turn - big rock center-right followed by a small pour-over and large wave below. The trip is mainly a float after this point with the exception of "mystery drop" a II+ drop on river right of an island.
