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.

Raft Trips or Routes


Lower Canyon
Salmo River - Sparking blue water in a remote canyon setting with great warm up class II/III section building to class IV boulder drops and gardens. A perfect example of progression in difficulty. The length of run is just over 11.5 km and ends in a large reservoir. The level of the Pend-d Oreille Reservoir can dictate the gradient of the last drop known as Bert's Drop. The difficult rapids of the Senango Canyon begin after about an hour of paddling and once you observe a small cabin on the river left. This is your last chance to take out before the canyon. There is a road that leads back to highway 6 after about 1.6 kilometres of boat hiking.
