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


Bobbie Burns into the Spillimacheen
Bobbie Burns Creek - A lovely class 3+/4 river run. Starts out with continuous boulder gardens and wavetrains and gradually changes character into more pool drop and bedrock in nature. A third of the way into the run you will see the obvious horizon line of a 30 foot waterfall that can be easily portaged on river left.
Loon Lake Lap
Spillimacheen River - Run starts off as meandering class 1+. Potential wood hazard throughout this slow section. Run picks up after a large river left eddy as the river quickly picks up the pace to class II+/III, the last bit is continuous class III with enough bend you don't get to look to far ahead. No stand out rapids, just notable eddies to take a break. This run can easily be done in under an hour at high flows.
