Tania Millen and friends have detailed 47 whitewater runs and 10 play spots that comprise the best paddling in northwest British Columbia. From the Sacred Headwaters of the Skeena, Nass and Stikine rivers in the north to the Morice and Bulkley rivers in the south; from Butze Rapids (a northern Skookumchuck Narrows) in the west to the salmon-rich Babine and Kispiox rivers in the east, each description contains the information you need to find the goods and have fun when you get there, all enriched by Millen’s historical and cultural notes. Rafting the Babine, paddling a canoe up the Gitnadoix or challenging the bedrock slides of the Khtada in your creek boat, there’s world class water here for novices, experts and crazies with something to paddle in every season.
