Diverse is how we would best describe the paddling in this mountain/prairie province. In the west of the province runs are characterized by beautiful backdrops, continuous rivers and cold water. Everything from mellow multi day floats in national parks to hairy class V creeking is available in the west. As you move further east the gradient drops but there are still plentiful paddling options for those looking to float mellow rivers in really unique surroundings. It is a huge province so don't neglect to look north and south too. A very worthwhile paddling destination in it's own right.

Whitewater Kayak Trips or Routes


Ings Creek to Longview
Highwood River - This is a nice easy run with a few ledges for a bit of class II/II+ fun. Its about a 2 hour paddle at an easy pace but the canyon is beautiful so taking longer to enjoy the view is not difficult.


Longview to High River
Highwood River - Rapids, rock ledges and some wave trains though various sections of this trip. Lots of fallen trees (2013 flood changed the dynamic of this river), logs, strainers and sweepers to keep you busy. Excellent opportunity to see various eagles and some trout. Some fun wave trains and drops too.
