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

Shawnigan Lake

Burnt Bridge
Koksilah River - A beautiful gem of a run suitable to intermediates but still enjoyable for advanced paddlers, the Burnt Bridge section features and open streambed with multiple class III & III+ drops (and one IV- at Burnt Bridge). As typical of small, Vancouver Island runs, this one occasionally collects wood hazards.
