Rocky Mountain canoeing expeditions on the Kootenay River in British Columbia


Paddle through the picturesque Canadian Rocky Mountains on these canoeing expeditions on the Kootenay River.  

The Kootenay River is an exciting whitewater run through the beautiful Canadian Rockies of southeast British Columbia. We'll launch high in Kootenay National Park and paddle three "reaches" or sections of the river. Park Reach offers an excellent introduction, with lots of swifts and easy rapids. Then 40 km downstream we'll enter the more-demanding Canyon Reach. The rapids are more challenging and cut through 50 km of steep-walled canyons. Lastly, we'll run the more-relaxing White River Reach and splash through amazing scenery in the westernmost ranges of the Rockies to our take-out point at Canal Flats.

We set up camp at the end of the day on the shore. With a glass of wine in hand, we’ll prepare an exceptional dinner to share around the campfire. Our base for this adventure is Nipika Mountain Resort - a lovely eco-lodge on the shore of the river where we’ll stay on our first and last nights. Any adventurous paddler can enjoy this trip. In our stable and forgiving, inflatable SOAR canoes, anyone can handle the rapids. Experienced canoeists will still appreciate the constant current, numerous rapids, and exceptional scenery.
