Countless Lakes and Rivers to Choose From.

Imagine an area larger than all the countries of the European Union combined. Now fill it with more than 60 national, provincial and marine parks as well as thousands of kilometres of coastline, innumerable lakes, and seven major river basins including the Stikine, Skeena, Nass, Raku, Yukon, MacKenzie, and the Fraser. Extending from the city of Prince George to the Yukon border, Northern BC is the largest region in the province but the least densely populated, meaning there’s plenty of room for paddlers to soak in all the stunning wildlife and scenery from wild beaches and lush rainforests to tiny islands and massive mountain peaks.
