The Kootenay River is an exciting whitewater run through the beautiful Canadian Rockies of southeastern British Columbia. The river offers a wide variety of rapids and scenery.
Experience two nights (the first and last) at our eco resort in beautiful log cabins and three nights camping at various spots along the river.
Any adventurous paddler can enjoy this trip. In our stable, inflatable SOAR canoes, anyone can handle the rapids. Experienced canoeists will appreciate the constant current, numerous rapids, and exceptional scenery.
*Please note that the June 20-25 trip is classified as a skill level 2 due to high water during run off. Paddling experience is required.*
