The Kootenay River is an exciting whitewater run through the beautiful Canadian Rockies of southeast British Columbia. We’ll launch high in Kootenay National Park and paddle three “reaches” (sections) of the river. Park Reach offers an excellent introduction, with lots of swifts and easy rapids. Then, 40 km downstream we will enter the more-demanding Canyon Reach. The rapids are more challenging here and cut through 50 km of steep-walled canyons. Lastly, we’ll run the more-relaxing White River Reach and splash through amazing scenery in the westernmost ranges of the Rockies to our take-out point at Canal Flats.
