Kayaking & Canoeing
Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)
The warm, sunny climate and hundreds of lakes and rivers make the Thompson Okanagan region a kayaking and canoeing oasis.
Paddle on some of Canada's warmest lakes and view the region’s many orchards and vineyards from the water’s edge. Pull over for lunch or camp overnight on one of the many sandy beaches here.
The Thompson Okanagan region offers plenty of options for kayaking and canoeing. Head to Wells Gray Provincial Park, laden with gorgeous waterfalls, to paddle on Murtle Lake, North America’s largest paddle-only lake with 100km/62mi of shoreline. Christina Lake beckons kayakers and canoeists in the Grand Forks area, and rivers and lakes are plentiful near Kamloops as well, such as the South Thompson River.
Where to Canoe and Kayak
One of the Okanagan’s best places to paddle is Wells Gray Provincial Park, which ranks among Canada's largest and most spectacular parks. Every lake here has something for the kayaking or canoeing enthusiast. Paddle for a few hours or take an extended wilderness trip.
