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.

Sup Trips or Routes

Prince George

Valhalla Rd - North end of Lake
Tabor Lake - Depending on the wind conditions I enjoy cruising up and down either shoreline. If the winds are coming from the South the west side of the lake is best. Here you can tck it to small bays and inlets to avoid the bulk of the wind. In these conditions once you are 2/3s of the way up the lake you can get into the middle of the lake and 'surf' your way back to the boat launch with the wind at your tail.. (This is not recommended without the proper safety equipment and ability - be prepared to take on water, capsize, flip, or swim). The northern and eastern shores of the lake provide some of the best bird watching around. Found at the northern point of the lake, a large raptors nest has existed for years. Canadian geese can be found with their goslings at the northern point of the lake as well. The eastern shoreline is dotted with lily pads and can be enjoyed from a paddleboard from late to early summer. And if ever there was a place to witness fish jumping at sunset, Tabor Lake is the place to be.
Wilkins to Cotton Wood Island Park.
Nechako River - This is a classic float for Prince George on hot summer days. Although a few folks will take out before you get to Cottonwood Island Park. By going all the way to Cottonwood Island Park you go under three out of six of Prince George's bridges that span the two intersecting rivers. The other three cross the Fraser river. This classic float is a great introduction to moving water with a few gentle eddies along the banks and plently of space to float. There existing a small surf wave near the end of Walsh road, existing on the south side of the river. Be aware of motorized river boats on this stretch
Upper willow
Willow River - This short but fun feature filled run is great when spring run of starts to slow down. At high water run of this section has a bundle of catch on the fly waves. This is a short run that can be lapped easily on the old logging road. At lower flows form small eddies behind boulders. Known to have large wood at times caught on boulders that create its features.
