Kayaking & Canoeing

The town of Wells provides access to several small lakes close by that are great for canoeing and kayaking.
By far the most famous is the chain of lakes located within Bowron Lake Provincial Park, about 32km/20mi east of Wells in the Cariboo Mountains.
This chain of nine lakes has become renowned in North America and Europe for its pristine wilderness setting, great wildlife viewing and spectacular canoeing and kayaking. It encompasses 116km/72mi of lakes, rivers and short portages, which loop around rugged mountain peaks that average 2,100m/6,900ft in height.
The chain forms a rough rectangular shape and begins and ends with Bowron Lake.
