Canoe and Kayak Trips

The Shuswap is a beautiful clear water river flowing out of the Monashees into Sugar Lake where it warms up considerably before continuing on its way to Mable Lake.
We mostly paddle the upper river from Sugar Lake to Wilsey Dam but will also paddle Cook Creek to Enderby for the less experienced.

We have six different river trips in our itinerary and will suit the trip to your paddling ability. From easy (class 1) to bring your Ye-Haw (class 3). Here are some examples:

Cook Creek to Ashton Creek 5 hours, class 1 to 2 , some moving water maneuvering required, a few easy chutes. We paddle through a most scenic valley among farmland and forests with beautiful pullout spots for a picnic and swimming and enjoy the wildlife and the many different bird species. A trip which you won't forget. An ideal trip for family and friends.

Ashton Creek to Enderby This 5 hour trip is ideal for a relaxed playful day ,the perfect opportunity to take your little kids along and make it a family day or just gently float along through beautiful nature. Enjoy the many fantastic swimming holes and watch trout and salmon (season permitting) beneath your canoe. There are many wonderful spots to have a delicious lunch, snacks and beverages.

Upper river to Wilsey Dam 8 hours. Experienced only! Some class 3, class2 with some log obstructions, sweepers and rapids. Mandatory portage (10 min. easy) around a class 5 fall and rapids. At the end of the portage one of the finest swimming holes on the Shuswap where we often practice our rescue technique followed by a hardy delicious lunch. There are some nice bouncy class 2 rapids flowing into a Bonzai Canyon where gently flowing water , rock ,moss and tree meet in perfect harmony. One of the most beautiful spots in North America and a fine opportunity to have a snack and a beverage while savoring this amazing jewel of nature.

We paddle from March through November with approx. a month off in High Water Season. If it's snowing - I ain't going!

Full body wetsuits are provided for shoulder season days. We use ‘Old Town' canoes and day trip kayaks, paddles and life vests are provided.

Dog Sledding Adventures

Come and spend a couple of days with some furry friends you'll never forget.

"The hilarious country boy adventure where you sometimes jump, duck or crawl quick enough - often times not."

Dog Sled Supported Overnight Ice Fishing Trip

You cross country ski, snowshoe or hike through a mountainous winter landscape approx. 8 km on a packed trail with a bunch of furry beasts (me included) to a frozen lake land. Will run ATV or Snowmobile also as support (takes a fair amount of gear to stay out overnight comfortably) in winter.

You bring: your own personal outdoor cold weather gear, cross country skis, snowshoes or winter boots.

I'll supply the cold weather, all food and found, fur and forest:

  • Four course steak dinner - 5 course if you catch a fish.
  • Big country breakfast and lunch.
  • Lawn chairs - of course - no stump sitting for this child.
  • Only high quality camping equipment used.
  • Ice auger, all fishing gear supplied,also included: "enthusiastic vocal support as you drill the hole"

Duration : two days and one night.

Note: My dogs are for supply only, but they will pack you some going down. Not for the weak of limb or timid of nature. Bring your howl - you gonna need it.

This trip is available late November to late March - depending on snow conditions. No sled between Christmas and New Year.
