Voyageur Canoe Trip

Paddle into the past on the beautiful Columbia River as our modern voyageur guides take you back to the time of the fur traders and birchbark canoes. Enjoy the stories of this fascinating time in Canada’s history, and be in "the right place at the right time" for viewing the abundant wildlife of the Columbia River Wetlands. The Columbia Wetlands are the longest intact wetlands in North America and part of the Pacific Flyway critical to migrating birds. At 180km in length, these wetlands are designated as a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. Some of the wild life regularly seen include; bald eagles, ospreys, painted turtles, great blue herons, beaver, river otter, elk, bighorn sheep and deer. The stability of our 34 ft Voyageur Canoes make this trip perfect for guests of all ages and abilities. Guests paddle two to a row, so it's a great opportunity to share a canoe adventure with your family & friends, or to meet new people who enjoy canoeing in the BC Rockies.

                        was the perfect trip - a nice blend of beautiful scenery, gentle floating and exciting rapids!

We are the 51st anniversary group that did a full day trip on the Kootenay. I completely forgot to come in at the end of the trip and thank you all. We had a fabulous time. It was the perfect trip - a nice blend of beautiful scenery, gentle floating and exciting rapids. My parents (both in their 70's) loved it. One of my best memories was hearing my mom scream in excitement as we roared through a set of rapids. I was a little concerned that my 11 year old son was just going to find it too tame but he too was blown away by the trip. It worked for all 11 of us. No one was bored and no one was terrified! I want to especially thank you for remembering the occasion (of my parents anniversary) and going to the trouble of providing a cake. It was totally unexpected and a real nice way to make the memory even more special for all of us. Travis and Tabatha were both just great. We are looking forward to joining you again for a trip down one of the other rivers.
Thanks again." Kevin W. Calgary, Alberta
