Last year, my brother his girlfriend and I set off on our first canoe trip in Canada through Algonquin park (Canoe - Big Trout and back over 6 days - we had planned a bigger loop, but fate had other plans! :wink: ).

As this forum was an invaluable resource in planning what turned out to be a fantastic trip, with the thought of another adventure in our mind, we thought we'd come back here to get some advice.

So, first things first, we're planning the trip for the beginning of September, and are thinking of heading west this time, into BC/Alberta, for an 8 day trip. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where we should start looking?

Your help is hugely appreciated!

Cheers,

Tom

Tom, as there are a variety of types of routes, it would be helpful to have some parameters. Given that it sounds as if you're beginners, a lake route would be advised. Famous, but less crowded in September, is the Bowron Lakes route. Nation Lakes north of Prince George might be a good choice as well.

Hey Tom, you've got a lot of options.

What comes to mind: Bowron and Nation lks of course, Powell River canoe route, Broken Islands (or many other ocean paddles), Takla-Stuart lks, Nanika/Kidprice-Morice lk-Morice River, any water around Tweedsmuir Park, Stikine River.
