British Columbia Kayaking
Beautiful British Columbia is hard to describe in a few short words. After all, this Canadian province has it all: mountains, ocean, islands, lakes, and everything in between. With limitless nature and easy access to the Pacific Ocean, water sport junkies love exploring British Columbia. A British Columbia kayaking trip will take you into the province’s wild heart, all while introducing you to the history and culture of the place.
The Kootenay River is a great place to try your hand at kayaking if you’re just a beginner. This gentle, rolling river is ideal for anyone who wants a calm, restful kayaking experience in the middle of nature, surrounded by deep valleys and tall mountains. Gently glide along as your guide directs your route, and soak up the birdsong and peace all around.
If you want to try out some whitewater rapids, Bull River is the place to be. You can even jump in your single kayak with a group of friends, and make your way downstream! Another ideal place for beginning kayakers to try some whitewater is on St. Mary’s River. The rapids on both rivers are mild and easy, and an experienced guide will be sure to guarantee your safety throughout the tour.

Elk River is definitely for the adventurous paddler!Read More ...
