Discover Canada’s Best Canoeing and Kayaking

Canoers and kayakers have a lot of waterways to explore in Canada. In New Brunswick, the record-setting tides of the Bay of Fundy have carved intricate patterns and pathways out of the rocky shoreline, making for a once-in-a-lifetime sea kayaking opportunity. In Ontario, the famous canoe routes of Algonquin Provincial Park continue to captivate new generations of paddlers. In Saskatchewan, remote northern rivers lead canoe trippers through a seemingly endless pristine wilderness. In the Rocky Mountains, challenging whitewater runs offer unmatched thrills for expert paddlers. And on BC’s Pacific coast, kayakers can float alongside seals, dolphins and orca whales in some of the most biologically rich waters on the planet. No matter which part of the country you find yourself in, there is some incredible paddling to be had. That is why Backroad Mapbooks includes as much paddling information on our maps as possible.
