Nestled in the Columbia River Valley between the spectacular Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges lies the Columbia Wetlands Outpost. Many of us call the Columbia Wetlands a living natural treasure because of it’s role as an essential eco-system, home to hundreds of animal species.

Guests at the Columbia Wetlands Outpost have an opportunity to experience a magical adventure, a chance to pause and soak in something that is eye-wateringly beautiful, exciting yet profound. Whether you prefer to explore endless tributaries, at your own pace, in a canoe/kayak/SUP or simply float gently down the Columbia on a guided catacraft tour is your choice.
