Kayaking & Canoeing
Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)
BC's Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region draws kayakers and canoeists from around the world with hundreds of tranquil lakes set amid evergreen forests. Spectacular ocean kayaking options abound too.
With scenery that ranges from cascading waterfalls to coastal mountains, the Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit is the most renowned destination for paddlers. The Turner Lake Canoe Chain, the Moose Valley Canoe Route, and the Nazko Lake Provincial Park canoe circuit are also popular.
Looking for a remote wilderness experience while ocean kayaking on BC’s central coast? Head to picturesque Klemtu, Bella Bella, Shearwater, Princess Royal Island, or the Hakai Luxvbalis Conservancy Area. All are rich in native culture, but have low population density.
Guided kayak and canoe tours are easy to arrange. And don’t miss the wildlife viewing and fishing opportunities in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Seeing grizzly bears, moose, bald eagles, or porcupines adds to the thrill of paddling in this beautiful region.
