of BC's Bowron Lakes Canoe Circuit

Pathways Tours of the Bowron Lakes … in the Cariboo Chilcotin region of British Columbia … we are the original and the most experienced Bowron Lakes canoe guides. Our number one commitment is to make sure that everyone who travels with us has the adventure vacation of a lifetime. We enjoy sharing our knowledge and enjoyment of this British Columbia jewel --- the Bowron Lakes Canoe Circuit - and in the process establishing friendship bonds that far outlast the trip itself.

If you are planning to canoe the Bowron Lakes with a guide, Pathways should be your choice. Besides being in the company of the best guides, at the end of the trip you will have received canoeing instruction to prepare you for a canoe trip on your own -- or to participate in our Yukon adventures.

Our guides at Pathways Tours will make sure that your Bowron Lake canoeing adventure, in the Cariboo, is filled with laughter and stories and that this unique Canadian experience will give you memories to last a lifetime.

Imagine nine lakes, each with a distinct personality, linked by a hundred kilometers of lazy rivers, exciting rapids and cascading waterfalls. Imagine mountains in the background, wispy morning mists - and an abundance of wildlife surrounding you. Skoi Lake is enchanting but short, hardly long enough to get a paddle wet. Isaac Lake, dark and sombre, seems to go on forever. Lanezi is a murky leaden grey, and Rum is a tiny sheltered gem bordered by wide beaches. Abundant wildlife and rich flora are set amidst a backdrop of azure lakes, cascading waterfalls and high, glaciated peaks. Stretches of exciting rapids and chutes contrast with lazy river drifting. Even the weather, unpredictable and dramatic, adds to the picture. All the elements combine to provide a truly inspirational setting for the canoeist, photographer and nature lover.

Pathways Canada Tours is a small company that prides itself in its guiding experience and personal service. We run only canoe expeditions and we run them in two areas: the Bowron Lakes and Yukon rivers. In 1974 we became the first company to run commercial canoe trips in Bowron Lakes Provincial Park, and we have been guiding on the Yukon rivers since 1980. At Pathways Tours we take great care to make sure our guides reflect our love of the wilderness. We use the same guides year after year and all have extensive experience guiding Yukon rivers and the Bowron Lakes. Our guides have wilderness first aid certificates and BCRCA canoe instructors' certificates. We are the most experienced guides on the Bowron Lakes and believe our company runs the best trips.

After thirty years and well over 300 Bowron Lakes expeditions under their belts, Pathways Tours continues to maintain their love for the Bowron Lakes -- and their enthusiasm for sharing nature with others. Pathway's is very proud of its tradition of excellence, its safety record and its satisfied clients.
