Canoe Trips British Columbia

95 Day Trips and Wilderness Camping Trips in British Columbia.

by Jack Wainright. 


Canoe Trips British Columbia is a comprehensive guidebook to British Columbia's paddling waters. With a special emphasis on safety, this guidebook will help you get the most out of your paddling trips whether you're out for an evening paddle on a pond or a week long expedition.

  Once you hear the rhythmic dip and splash of a paddle, you will never again view water in quite the same way. You will find yourself gazing across bays and inlets wondering what lies around the next bend. You will never again pass by some stream or river without wondering if it could be run.




This definitive guide to 95 of British Columbia's favorite paddling destinations includes:

  • 54 Lower Mainland day trips on lakes, rivers, and saltwater.
  • 41 wilderness canoe camping trips.
  • Canoe camping checklist, tips for equipment selection, and safety.
  • A detailed paddling map of the Lower Mainland.
