Kayaking & Canoeing
Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)
Both kayak and canoe enthusiasts come to Northern BC to experience a blend of unspoiled wilderness, clear waters, and abundant wildlife.
The region features one of the world's great kayak destinations – Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. In Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), kayakers can paddle among 100-plus islands and countless islets while exploring bays and sheltered inlets. Or, launch from Prince Rupert to enjoy protected ocean waters and fine whale-watching opportunities.
The Northern BC region encompasses more than half of BC’s total area, and contains some of the province's most pristine, uncrowded waterways. Check out the Nanika-Kidprice Canoe Route, the Nation Lakes Canoe Route, and Muncho Lake.
Northern BC also has serene lakes, challenging rapids, and accessible wilderness campsites and beaches. In remote areas, wildlife viewing opportunities and hiking trails abound. Most Northern BC lakes and rivers also offer tremendous fishing.
