Overview

The "Week of Rockies Rivers" is an exciting whitewater holiday. We stay at Nipika Mountain Resort, and each day we'll paddle a new section of river through the beautiful Canadian Rockies of southeast British Columbia. We'll launch high in Kootenay National Park and paddle three "reaches" or sections of the Kootenay River.
Park Reach offers an excellent introduction, with lots of swifts and easy rapids. Then 40 km downstream we'll enter the more-demanding Canyon Reach. The rapids are more challenging and cut through 50 km of steep-walled canyons. Lastly, we'll run the more-relaxing White River Reach and splash through amazing scenery to Canal Flats in the westernmost ranges of the Rockies. We'll also explore two tributaries of the Kootenay. The White River is a long run of almost continuous Class 2 rapids. Our "finale" is a short, fun run on the smaller Cross River near the resort on our last morning. Our base for this adventure is Nipika Mountain Resort - a lovely eco-lodge on the shore of the Kootenay. We'll stay in comfortable log chalets and enjoy excellent meals together. Any adventurous paddler can enjoy this trip.

Nipika was the perfect base for this trip! I enjoyed coming back to the lodge at the end of an exciting day, for a sauna and home-cooked meal!
