Canoeing

The lakes and streams in the vicinity of Nechako Lodge offer many possibilities for canoe trips of various lengths and skill levels. Our licensed instructors can assist with instructions and advice, whether you chose a short afternoon paddle in front of the lodge, an exciting outing on a whitewater river, or a serious wilderness canoe expedition.

For the adventurous, a trip on the remote Nechako River offers an unforgettable wilderness experience, and requires only moderate skill levels. You'll start in a narrow canyon and then paddle through the low rolling hills of the wide Nechako Valley. This river winds its way north, past beautiful pine, spruce and aspen forests, open range land and a few settlements. To run the full length of the river from the bottom of Cheslatta Falls to Prince George will take approximately 6-8 days. Road access is avaialbe in several locations making shorter journeys possible.

Wilderness canoe enthusiasts will be attracted to the huge expanse of Eutsuk Lake in North Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. Exploring the islands and bays of this glacier fed lake, surrounded by the spectacular glaciers and peaks of the Coast Mountains, is an unforgettable experience. Some canoeist chose to follow the chain of lakes that stretch for over 200 kilometers from Surel Bay at the west end of Eutsuk Lake to Nechako Lodge near Kenney Dam on Knewstubb Lake.

The breathtaking scenery and solitude of the Coast Mountains, the forests and low rolling hills of the Nechako Plateau, and the wide blue sky and sparkling clean water will make this route the journey of a lifetime.
