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.

Crossover Kayak Trips or Routes

Radium Hot Springs

McLeod Meadows to Canal Flats
Kootenay River - This is a 3 - 5day section that can be split into smaller more interesting pieces. Low water is when this run is suitable for overnight trips as there are easy ways to navigate all rapids and keep your gear dry! There is take out access at km 19 (horseshoe rapids recreation site) making the run 2-3hrs long. There is also take out access at km 35 on Kootenay River Rd making this run 4-7hrs long depending on water levels and pit stops.
Radium to Edgewater
Columbia River - This is an easy float trip through the Columbia Wetlands. You will see lots of birds, ducks and maybe even beavers. This trip is good at all water levels. If you are hoping to camp along shore- high water is not a great time.
