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.

Canoe Trips or Routes


Waiparous to Ghost Reservoir
Ghost River - The Ghost River is a scenic run in the bottom of a beautiful foothills valley. Rapids are created by small boulder gardens, walls and small broken ledges. There are great eddylines for working on skills, fun wave trains and eddy accessible small surf waves all the way down.
Campground to Waiparous
Waiparous Creek - A small volume run in a pretty and steep sided canyon. The bulk of the water is easy Class II, with the odd II+ or III- feature in medium and higher water levels. The rapids are made up mainly of small broken ledges, small boulder gardens or where the current fires into the canyon walls.
