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

Field

Yoho - Canyon section
Yoho River - An absolute classic rockies creek run for those ultra comfortable in Class IV+/V whitewater. It is in a super deep gorge from which self extraction is often not possible, and, the whitewater (particularly at higher levels) is pushy and challenging.
Hike In
Ottertail River - A continuous boulder garden run that moves along quickly and has a couple of likely portages due to wood. In the initial stages there are a couple of pretty permanent log jams and logs across the river. Be aware of this and be ready to portage. After this there is a stretch of awesome class 3-4 boulder gardens until you reach cyclotron where a rock slide has created a pretty sticky hole, directly after cyclotron there is a class 4 boulder garden followed by a class 3- 4 drop named Bubbas. Bubbas is characterized by a large midstream rock and has a small ledge that can become quite sticky at higher flows. After this these rapids keep your head up as there will be more log jams to portage. Class III boulder boogie to the takeout from there.
