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.

Whitewater Kayak Trips or Routes

Fairmont Hot Springs

Fairmont Hot Springs
Columbia River - This is a fun class I-II river that is very narrow, clear, warm and an overall great place to gain confidence as a beginner. There are lots of bends and nice big eddies to practice on.
Full Run
Dutch Creek - A great long run in the East Kootenays. A mix of great scenery and Class III to IV whitewater in some really cool canyons. There is a long flatter section between the 2 canyons.
