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.

Waiparous Village

Richards Rd to Waiparous
Ghost River - Class 2 section runnable when everything else is high. The river is pretty wide, the waves are mostly created by walls and small broken ledges. Run has a few fallen trees on the side of the river which could make a potential hazard for beginner paddlers. Overall, the run has very similar characteristic to the Lower Kananaskis section.
