Canoeing & Kayaking Summer Outdoor Activities

The only sound is water gently lapping at the side of your boat and trickling off your paddle as you slice through the turquoise water. The blissful quiet is broken by fish splashing on the surface and the call of a loon. Canoeing on Alberta’s scenic lakes and rivers is a day with nature at its finest. Learn a traditional mode of Canadian transportation essential to aboriginals, early explorers and fur traders. Pack a picnic and paddle out to a distant shore or do Alberta’s only backcountry canoe circuit. Step up your fitness, step into a kayak, and run some whitewater.
