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. What we also know is that the mighty Columbia River slows as it winds through the wetlands, setting the pace for us and all who seek respite here. 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. Stay with us for several days to experience even more of our beautiful surroundings at the luxurious Columbia Wetlands Outpost Lodge, or unique Columbia Wetlands Outpost Tepee and Timber tents.
